Went gyn exam did fecal yest and it came back in minutes

Customer Question

Went for annual gyn exam did fecal yest and it came back in minutes postive. Doctor went straight to how colon cancer is curable not could it be something else. I just got back from Mexico where ate and drank. I have past hemorrhoids that bleed. I am 58 have scheduled a colonoscopy in 2 weeks no family history and no other symptoms. Anxiety level really high since doctor jumped to cancer. Wondering if possible different outcome
