The differential diagnosis for a white intraluminal colon lesion is very long and branching and would include benign things such as a foreign body, scar formation all the way up to more significant things such a tumors.
The bot***** *****ne?
There is no way to guess what this mass is by looking at it from inside your abdomen.
So. What should you do?
You need to gather up your records, as well as these intraoperative photographs, and consult with a GI specialist. After reviewing your records and examining you she will, most likely, schedule you for a colonscopy. During the colonscopy she will be able to directly visualize the lesion or lesions and obtain tissue biopsy for microscopic evaluation.
This way you will know exactly what this white mass is and what, if anything, needs to be done.
Is it an emergency that you see a GI Specialist and have a colonscopy and'or an MRI, done? No. But I would try to get in for a complete GI evaluation sooner rather than later.
Does this make sense to you?
