Colonoscopy results

My husband had a colonoscopy on Monday under the fast track system.  Blood had been found in his poo sample and he has also had various blood tests and he is anaemic also.  The rest of the blood tests were clear.

they have found a cancerous tumour in his colon and he is booked for a ct scan on Monday and biopsies have been sent of polyps they also found.  

talking to people whoI’ve had and survived bowel cancer - they didn’t need a ct scan - does this mean the cancer has spread?

Much appreciate any advice - I’m really worried

  • Hello there Jane 

    Glad the CT is now out of the way and hope everything goes well at the appointment and you both find out more soon.

  • Evening all - just thought I’d let you know my husband has had his appointment with the Consultant.  Thankfully she doesn’t think the cancer has spread.  He is booked in for his pre-op in a couple of weeks and then surgery between Christmas and New Year.

    thank you for all your reassuring replies and I’ll keep you posted of his progress.

    very best wishes x

  • Hello Heady1 and thanks for updating us all

    Good to hear the appointment with the consultant went well and that the surgery isn't too long away now.
