I could be wrong, butt I don't think so. I know you have Lynch, thus polyps can grow faster, butt I believe it still take 2-3 yrs for a Lynch person to develop cancer from a polyp.
For the general population, about 10 yrs for a polyp to turn cancerous.
Sometime, especially those flat one, fold in the colon, not a complete clean out, some polyps do get missed. I know, not something you wanted to read.
Good luck, hopefully it is nothing serious, butt boy do I understand your fear.
Thanks lee. It was a flat polyp. I wonder if that makes a difference? All of my polyps have been that way I think.
