6 days ago I had my first endoscopy and colonoscopy. The doc found one small polyp in the sigmoid area...called it diverticulosis. He told me he saw "nothing worrisome" when he was in there. I should hear back this week about the biopsies that were taken.
My question is, what are the other biopsies for? I am aware of the biopsy of the polyp, celiac disease, and obviously, cancer. But what other diseases are they looking for, or trying to rule out?
