...It is well known that colorectal cancers arise from adenomatous polyps, which have three histologic variants: tubular, tubulovillous, and villous adenomas. Tubular adenomas represent ~75% to 85% of adenomatous polyps and have < 5% chance of harboring a malignancy. Tubulovillous adenomas represent 10% to 15% of polyps and usually 20% to 25% harbor a malignancy. Villous adenomas constitute 5% to 10% of the remaining polyps and 35% to 40% of the polyps are malignant.
The size and degree of villous features are also predictive of the risk of malignancy within the polyp. Polyps larger than 2 cm have > 40% chance of being malignant...

If it isn't cancerous or even precancerous...hooray!!! If it is precancerous or even cancerous just be glad that it was caught early. Even IF it is cancerous, it isn't all doom and gloom. I know it's difficult to say but RELAX. Breathe....try to stop playing Dr. Google and just wait for the results. One thing for certain....you will need to have scopes from now often and intervals likely never to exceed 5 years apart. Don't take your health for granted. Be proactive and avoid any future problems.
