Sorry to hear you are back but there’s plenty of room for optimism that it will be relatively early.
In my case their were some similarities. I had a pre cancerous polyp removed that showed high grade dysplasia. Clean scopes for 5 years and then a Tumor was discovered in that exact spot. I have read some research and it seems about 30% of the time scope procedures leave cancer cells behind.
It’s still an early catch by other standards and you have a great chance of a good outcome.
