Low: You need another colonoscopy in 5 years based on the size and type of adenoma you describe, to make sure others do not develop that are larger or different in type. Not smoking and no family history are great factors in your favor. ...Read more

Not anymore: Polyps are benign if removed early like you have done. Only if you neglect them and let them grow, they can change into cancer. You should be fine, but your doctor would likely advise you to have repeat colonoscopy every 5 years or at least every 10 years because there is small risk of developing new polyps . But there is no reason to worry about cancer as long as you are having colonoscopy as advi. ...Read more

TdaP: You are okay with a "clean" (non-rusty, indoor cut) on tetanus shot for 10 years, but if you are around any babies you may want to update you tetanus to include pertussis, or whooping cough, with tdap now available for teens and adults so not to catch or transmit whooping cough to others. ...Read more
