During a colonoscopy to find out why my stomach has been hurting for several months on and off the doctor found and removed 4 polyps. I am only 43. He told me that this was not what was causing my pain, pretty much said it was IBS. Anyway, he said the polpys looked ok but they would send them for testing to make sure. My question is isnt it unusual for someone my age to have so many polpys and can the doctors normally tell by looking at the polyp that it is not cancerous. Test results should be in this week. I am worried sick
