I'm 65 years old (Oct 1945), & just had my 2nd colonoscopy in 10-11 years. Doc found a single diminutive polyp in the sigmoid colon. Got results today & they said Pathology showed the polyp tissue to be adenomatous or precancerous. Current guidelines recommend repeat colonoscopy for further screening in 5 years. I've no family history but for last ~ 8 months have been more sedentary than any other time in my life & under stress. Is it possible that this could contribute to this Dx? If so, or not, any recommendations about what I should do to lower my risk? I'm now being more active & have decreased stress in my life.
Any & all help would be appreciated.
