I had an endo & colonoscopy. The nurse called  last wk & adv that the results showed the polyp removed was precancerous but benign;what does this mean?

Adenomatous polyp: You most likely had an adenomatous polyp. These polyps are the most common type of polyp we find in the colon, occurring in roughly 20-30% of patients. Over a long time (10 years), these polyps can possibly turn into cancer, so we call them "pre-cancerous". However we also often call them "benign" as they are 1) very common 2) we remove them, and 3) technically they are not cancer yet. ...Read more

No diagnostic test: is ever 100%. There are always false negatives and positives. In your case, your doctor was probably looking for kidney stones or infection or a problem with your ovary, not something in the colon.
