The good news is: You caught it early and it is removed before it turned cancerous . You need follow up colonoscopy as per your gastroenterologist . As to this particular lesion , it is precancerous but not a cancer yet . You are one of the luckiest people colonoscopy brought to the medical field. Good luck.

Not high: Polyp was dysplastic(changing in a bad way) but not yet cancer and now it is gone! you just need more frequent colonoscopy than someone without them to make sure they do not return
