I went in for routine colonoscopy, which went fine. However, doctor said there was a "nodule" on my anus, and they needed to send some cells to lab for analysis. About a week later, his office called and said I needed to make an appointment for a high resolution anoscopy with a different doctor. First available appointment isn't until late September(7 weeks after test results came back).
i asked for copy of pathology report, which has two listings under diagnosis:
1. Low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion
2. Glandular cells present.
Ive been able to read up on LSIL so I have a pretty good idea what that means. But I can't find any information on the glandular cells diagnosis. Does anyone have a feel for the significance of this? Obviously I will have lots of questions for the doctor, but my appointment is still 5 weeks away!!
thanks in advance.
