What are the odds that after having a clear colonoscopy 17 months ago, a mass I have now is cancer?

High: Cancers tend to grow more quickly than non cancerous tumors. Therefore, if you had a clear colonoscopy 17 months ago, and you now have a tumor in your colon, the chance that the tumor is cancer is higher than if you have not had a clear colonoscopy 17 months ago.
