Thanks for writing in.
Given your symptoms and the findings on the CT Scan, it is difficult to comment on how serious the lesion is. The cause of the symptoms could be related to anything from colon cancer. The best approach at this time is to get a colonoscopy done and any suspicious lesions should be biopsied. This would truly help us comment on the seriousness of the lesion.
After this evaluation has been done, a visit to a gastroenterologist would be mandated.
Hope this helps. I would be available for follow ups.
