I am 58 yrs old.

My Colonoscopy Report

10 polyps removed and a biopsy of Adenoma. No cancer found.

Report shows:
2" Tubular Adenomas with High Grade Dysplasia

From what I can find on the web is:
Most adenomas that are small (less than ½ inch) have a tubular growth pattern. Larger adenomas more often have cancers developing in them.

Dysplasia is a term that describes how much your polyp looks like cancer under the microscope.

My Doctor says I need my intire ascending colon removed. I will be getting another opinion, but advise from you would be helpfull. Thanks
