This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I understand your hear and apprehension.
The polyp is cancerous and there is only localized involvement.
This is considered stage 1 cancer or very early stage detection.
This can be completely cured by removing the affected segment of the colon.
Of course a surgeon will also check for any local lymph node involvement but still that is fully curable.
So although it is a bad news for you, it does portend excellent prognosis for you.
You should set up an appointment with your specialist for further discussion.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
