    What is the prognosis post removal of an intestinal polyp?

hello dr. i have a male freind who has had a colonoscopy plus some fatty tissues were removed from his upper right side of abdomen.He had a piece of his intestines cut out because of a polyp. He had a prostate exam plus was taking antibiotics for over a month. He went back to the dr. and now they have to do some extensive tests on him. Could this be a very serious condition going on?
