Its significance depends on the indication of the colonoscopy, especially if you have the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloody and or mucous stool, etc. With that finding, GI doctor can't tell you anything specific. You should patiently wait for the biopsy result. Good luck.
