Welcome to the 2 new members. Sorry for the reason you are here.
Has anybody used the word cancer? I have been here of a few yrs now, many people have joined this forum, they assume they have this cancer butt are just waiting to get the confirmation from their doctor. Usually they diagnose themselves via Dr. Google, only to find out no cancer, just something else. Yes I understand about your aunt, yes it is best to get it checked out. Get that colonoscopy. It very well could be something else other than colon cancer. Butt again, best to find out. Try not to worry.
Have to ask, what is a FIT?? I'm a 16 yr survivor, don't remember that word, butt then again, a lot of advancements since my diagnoses.
Hopefully it is non cancerous. Not all polyps are cancerous, nor will they ever turn cancerous. Only certain types turn cancerous. Sometimes when they remove a polyp, it is precancer. Stage O, no further treatment necessary. That was my husband. Try not to worry, but please let us know your results.
Good luck to both of you,
