¿Me quitaron un pólipo de colon y solo tengo 20 años?

Hola, me gustaría saber si alguien más ha pasado por esto, tengo 20 años y durante mucho tiempo he sangrado al ir al baño, finalmente tras un estudio con colonoscopia se detectó un pólipo de aproximadamente 12 mm intensamente congestivo que fue extirpado el mismo día de la colonoscopia..

¿Es algo raro tener 1 pólipo con 20 años?

Yo siempre leí que los pólipos ocurren en el 99% de los casos en personas con más de 40 o 50 años, o aquellos que tienen herencia genética.

Me parece muy raro porque jamás nadie de mi familia tuvo pólipos ni problemas con el colon.

¿Alguien más ha pasado por esto a una edad Joven?

¿Los pólipos aislados representan algún peligro a largo plazo, aún si son extirpados? A veces me da miedo.
