I am 32 yrs old male
so I had my colonoscopy 4 days ago after having some issues with difficulty to move bowels, cramps, gas, bloating and all these kind of things that a GI told me about 2 years ago that it was IBS causing these.
I was having these troubles all along for this time sometimes less sometimes more...
Now after I woke up in the room the dr started showing me the recording of colonoscopy and in the end when he was almost going out of the colon he was showing me some red patches aprox 1-2 cm in diamter which appeared to be as flat lesions . It was 3 of them and he was not sure what they were! It is incredible worrisome as he was suspecting to be "hemangiomas" but he was not sure he said and would be best to ask a second opinion. Now he in a way indicated that it could be something even worse so I have been scared to death for the last few days.
I was then to 3 more GIs to ask for their opinions and none of them said it looks like hemangiomas or there is something to worry about, but me being a paranoid I am I have started reading online and making assumsions about what could those be and finding some rare melanomas which could be really bad even though they seem to be incredibly rare I was connecting these thoughts with my first GI who did colonoscopy said he has never seen something like this... this is especially worrisome if he said he has never seen something like this.
Anyone ever had anything like this before? Anyone has had a similar experience?
Here is a link to one one these 3 red patches that he spoted on my scope
