My 38 year old sister had a colonoscopy today. She had it done because for the past two months she has had red blood in her stool and cramping. They found 8 polyps (which they said is unusual for her age). The dr was particularly concerned about a 3cm polyp. They removed all of the polyps and are having them tested. My family is so nervous and we have to wait a week for results ! Any information regarding her situation etc would be helpful !!

...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...
