I had a Colonoscopy in Sept 2011 4 days after my son got married and a 6cm long polyp was found. Biopsies were taken but I was told there and then that I had Cancer. The results from biopsies came back benign. I had a second colonoscopy in Sept when I was told that it still looked suspicious and could be cancer in its early stages. Then I had an operation to remove the polyp in October. After 4 weeks of waiting the results were benign!! What a terrible couple of months me, my wife and family went through all because "someone jumped the gun" with my diagnosis.
