Consent Signing for D&C...

 So today the "c" word was brought up during my consent signing with the doctor who is performing my D&C. And I'm not talking fun c words. I'm talkin cancer. I'm 20 and have (what her best guess via ultrasound is) polyps. She hasn't seen anyone this young with polyps, but we know that they can happen. I was nervous and she said that it'll be okay, and no matter if they find cancer or not (not exact words) at least things will get better for me. She's an awesome doctor, and her phrase was nothing compared to how I just put it, but I'm nervous. If, god forbid, I have uterine cancer, I'll deal with it. I'm not totally freaked out, but I'm also not nonchalant about it. I read that polyps are only 1-2% likely to be cancerous, so that relieves me, I just don't know why she brought it up if she didn't have an actual concern. It wasn't as straight as I THINK YOU HAVE CANCER and it wasnt as subtle as listing off the things a polyp could mean. It was somehwere in between, somewhere with concern. Not sure how to talk it...
