Rectal Nodule and Surgery

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?
