Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

I recently had a colonoscopy and was told that I had a nodule in the rectum. I have been experiencing pain for the past 3 to 5 years but each time I went I was told that I must be under alot of stress.
The problem is that after my colonoscopy the GI doctor told me he found a nodule and referred me to a colon surgen. He also said that he was unable to finish the colonoscopy due to kinks in my colon. So that same day I had a barum enama xray.
It was the worst. But I am really upset because he just told me the nodule was "not his area"---
It is the weekend and I have to work tomorrow. So now I really am stressed. He took out a polyop and sent it off for biopcy. But did not due a biopcy of the nodule.
He never said the word Cancer so am I worried about nothing?
