I would get the biopsy and hope you are one of the 750,000 negative ones. It only takes 20 minutes, is only "uncomfortable" not painful. You will bleed some afterwards and the week or so following the procedure. But it is worth the time and inconvience to be sure instead of guess work.
I never had to have an enema before a biopsy but I can see the valium could be useful.
You have been blessed with a healthy life so far. Be grateful for that but no need to gamble on your future.
This goes for all others out there who are afraid on the dreaded BIOPSY! I have had three of them in 12 years and the third one was positive. Believe me, I enjoyed hearing the negative reports much better than the final positive one.
Good luck and I hope you get a negative report.
