Hey guys....my brother died of colon cancer 6 mos ago....when he was diagnosed 2 1/2 yrs ago everyone in my family went for colonoscopies (our mother died of it 10 yrs before). I had a few polyps removed and they said come back in 2 yrs...well, just went Monday and they found a cancerous mass on my colon...about the size of 2 thumbnails (small)...meeting with a surgeon on tues to discuss and schedule surgery and then make a plan for chemo and/or radiation if necessary. I truly believe it has been found early enough and I maintain a positive attitude. Anyone had any experiences with this kind of thing..I'm 54, my brother was 57.
