After having a 18cm cyst removed, pathology said that it had precancerous cells. My right ovary was already removed due to torsion. Should I worry?
Probably not: Any cyst of the ovary over 5 cm. has to be considered as one that has or will possibly undergo malignant transformation.

I had polyp removed during colonoscopy. It was not cancer. If it was left alone what would have happened? Dr said repeat every 5 years. You agree?
Yeah I got a colonoscopy about 3 weeks ago and I still have severe diarrhea is that normal or should I be concerned they cut a pre-cancerous polyp out?
No concern: medication taken to clean bowel could lead to diarrhea but having removed or not removed polyp, unless latter was malignant is unassociated with bowel malignancy.
