I had an operation to remove Hemorrhoids, in May 2009, shortly after I was told one of my Hemorrhoids was a Squamous Cell Carcinoma in Situ, which was high grade.
I was then referred to a professor at a university hospital (I am in the UK). He told me that it had been removed intact and it would be unlikely to return, he continued to monitor me with visual examinations. I was not given any further treatment.
After about 12 months I was given a biopsy and told my cells were not healthy, but not containing any cancer cells either, so he again contined to monitor me.
Following a recent visit and again visual examination, he has told me that I have discolouration next to the original cancer site, which is typical indication of the cells turning pre cancerous. He also added there is a further area of concern oposite the original site.
Quite honestly I was very shocked as I had been told I wouldnt have any further problems,
I visited my own General Praticioner with the news I had been given, as I am concerned no treatment is being done, he told me I should trust the Professor as he is one of the best in his field.
I would be very interested in all your thoughts on this matter, do you think this sounds right? I am very worried, why is he waiting for the biopsy? I dont understand.
