Brief Answer:
yes, it is.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,
Thanks for your query.
As far as it is colonic adenoma , which is a benign process, only fulgration or colonoscopic removal is needed followed by a periodical check up as any time the adenomatus changes in the colon get converted into malignancy. Keep your dietary habits good by consuming good fibre content and minimum fat and read meat.
Regarding precancerous changes in the breast you have to be specific as regards the site and size of the lesion. If agreed upon by your doctor I I feel it should be excised unless otherwise contraindicated.
For cervix you should go for pap smear examination and verify HPV serology. If necessary you should undergo HPV vaccination as per the advice of your doctor.
Having balanced food with less of fats and adequate hydration and alkalisation of body and moderate daily exercise should give you good health ahead.
