is a colon polyp more likely to grow fast if it's cancerous? i had a colonoscopy last year with no polyps, had a very large polyp removed today

sort ofm: Since you were negative a year ago, you must have bled to warrant re-exam. Rapid growth is a sign of cancer. I note you do not use. 81 mg Aspirin that may inhibit polyp transformation and growth.
