Growths that form in the colon can raise your risk of developing cancer. In some cases, your surgeon will not know if the growth is cancerous until after it is removed. Your provider may have ordered testing such as a colonoscopy or CAT scan to confirm this. If you have had a prior cancerous lesion then surgery may be the best treatment. Your surgeon will discuss different treatment options and come up with a plan that best fits your condition.
