But 2mm is so small and tubular the is the best way for it to look, mine was 15mm and tubulovillous. So hopefully as long as we get our checks and get the small suckers removed, we are...

Sound like you suffer from hypochondria, and this is not meant in a negative way, I to suffer from it.

Re: Blood on stool/normal colonoscopy 4 1/2 year ago

My first doctor missed my polyp, I kept bleeding on/off had a new colonoscopy one year later that removed a 15mm non cancerous polyp in my sigmoid.

99% of the time the scopy notice polyps, I just had a Terrible doctor. But you feel unsure, go get it checked out.
