So scared: Just found 5cm tumor in rectosigmoid colon: Tips?
Hi. I’m a 45 year old female with no family hx. I don’t smoke, drink socially and my diet is “ok”. However, yesterday after several months of light bleeding which I thought was a hemorrhoid along with bowel changes, I had a colonoscopy. They found a 5cm tumor in the recto sigmoid colon. They biopsied it and want to schedule surgery to remove it. I’m scared. I’m on night 2 of no sleep because my mind is racing as I consider all the scenarios. Tips? Thoughts? Anything? Is it at all possible a tumor that size would not be cancerous?
I am so scared
