      I babe my five year colonoscopy coming up next wed I’ve had them many times . I always have polyps the ones that can turn over to something bad . So now I have anxiety hoping my polyps will be ok . I never leave without polyps sometimes two or one . One time seven . My question is it takes many years for polyps to turn to cancer . I heard this from someone is this true that it takes polyps at least ten years to be cancer? I have many friends with colon cancer now that’s why I’m afraid this time . But none of them Ever had a colonoscopy in their life so they may have had polyps growing along time . . I have them Every three to five years. Just need a pep talk that it takes along time for them to change over if anyone knows that’s the case. Ugg scared

      It’s very difficult to cope sometimes but I just try to find something to distract my thoughts…..taking a long, hot shower usually helps. Try and find a relaxing hobby…. I started sewing/quilting about 5 years ago and I find that if I can go hide in my sewing room for a bit then I can relax a bit!
