    I am 51 years old had my second colonoscopy 2 days ago. Dr said he removed between 25 & 30 polyps & sent them to be tested. Is it really possible to have that many polyps removed @ once & what are the chances of all of them being noncancerous? Also my last colonoscopy was 5 years ago & my grandmother died from colon cancer.

    Why would your physician lie?

    sf1959 replied to georgiagail's response:
    It's not that I thought my physician would lie, I was just wondering if anyone had ever had that many removed @ once before? I've had people say they have had a few @ a time removed but never that many.

    what were the results of the testing of all the polyps? I'm hoping you got good news. Keep us posted.

    My Dr. said he removed 28 polyps & that they were all negative for cancer!! So I will have to do it again in 3 years.
