Yes he had biopsy at the time of Colonoscopy. The doctor said it will take about 4 days for the results. They said it may be a tumor and need surgery to remove it and he was pretty persistent. But my concern was he is Endocrinologist and not an Oncologist. So I was surprised why he was pressing us to have a surgery without an expert opinion ie, an Oncologist.
How do you rate Moffitt Cancer Center? I live very close to this place.

Report from Radiologist
Colo-colic intusucception of ascending colon noted with a large ill defined polypoidal soft tissue density, moderately enhancing mass measuring approximately 7x4.4 cm epicentered in ascending colon as its lead point, not causing any significant obstructin/dilatation of bowel loops proximal to it.
Cirucumferential nodular wall thiceking with submucosal oedema noted extending into hepatic flexure and proximal half of treansverse colon. Multiple draining mildly enhancing mesenteric lymphnodes noted in righ half of abdomen, largest measuring 1.5x0.9 cm in right iliac fossa and 1.1 x 1cm in central mesentry. Prominent vasa rectal seen supplying ascending colon. Mild perienteric fat stranding noted.
Base of caecum, ileo-caecal junction and appendix appear grossly normal.
Visualized sections of both lung bases, reveal multiple subsegmental atelectatic bands with bilateral mild defree pleural effusion. Peribronchovascular ground glass haze noted in both lungs (rught>left) indicating active insult. No evidence of any obvious focal lesions.
Bone window reveals no obvious eveidence of any focal bone lesions. Age related spondylotic changes in underlying spine.
Colo-colic intusucception of ascending colon noted with a large ill defined polypoidal soft tissue density, moderately enhancing mass epicentered in ascending colon as its lead point, not causing any significant obstruction/dilatation of #bowel loops proximal to it. Circumferential nodular wall thickening with submucosal oedema extending into hepatic flexure and proximal half of transverse colon with multiple draining mildly enhancing mesenteric lymphnodes and prominent vasa rectae seen supplying ascending colon associated with mild perienteric fat stranding noted - Likely of malignant etiology with local metastases to mesentric lymph nodes.
