    Hi everyone, hope someone can help
    I am confused about the biopsy results from my colonoscopy.
    The path report stated it was a single lymphoid nodule. One dr. said, that' ok
    the other dr is concerned that it's met. cancer.
    The barieum enema was clear. I don't want to be treated that doesn't need treating.
    Anyone else with the sameor advice, knowledge?

    Hi charliebird,

    I am very sorry for your health concerns. I moved your topic to the colon cancer forum because here you will get better information from others who have had colonoscopies before.

    I think both of your doctors are right from their own perspective. One lymph enlarged lymph node is a good thing (as opposed to many with an obvious tumor in the colon). However, your other doctor might also be right. The colon is a favorite metastatic site for several other cancers. The second doctor is just a little more cautious than the first and that is good. I assume he/she will run some other scans and tests to find out the truth. It is not a question of having any treatments at this point; you still need a diagnosis and you should definitely proceed with that.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.
