    Doctors removed five small growths from President Bush's colon Saturday, after he transferred power temporarily to the Vice President

    CAMP DAVID, Md. - Doctors removed five small growths from President Bush 's colon Saturday after he temporarily transferred the powers of his office to Vice President Cheney under the rarely invoked 25th Amendment.

    The polyps, extra tissue growing inside the large intestine, were found during a routine colon cancer scan performed at the Camp David presidential retreat.

    All were less than 1 centimeter (about four-tenths of an inch) and none appeared worrisome," White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said. Outside medical experts agreed.

    The polyps were sent to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., to be microscopically examined for signs of cancer. Results were expected in 48 to 72 hours. Polyps can turn cancerous, so finding them early is one of the best ways to prevent the disease and improve the odds of surviving it.

    "The standard procedure is to remove all polyps that you see," said Dr. David Weinberg, director of gastroenterology at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, who was not part of the medical team at Camp David. "But the majority of polyps taken out that are less than 1 centimeter in size are very unlikely to have cancer in them."

    Bush invoked the presidential disability clause of the Constitution at 7:16 a.m. EDT. He transferred his authority to Cheney, who was at his home on the Chesapeake Bay in St. Michaels, Md., about 45 miles east of Washington.

    Nothing occurred during the 2 hours and 5 minutes of the transfer that required Cheney to take official action, Stanzel said.

    Stanzel said the exam was performed under what he called "monitored anesthesia care," not general anesthesia. Under general anesthesia, a patient loses consciousness. Stanzel said Bush was asleep but responsive during the colon check. The medical team stopped administering anesthesia at 7:41 a.m. EDT; Bush was up 3 minutes later.
    During the 31-minute procedure, Bush was sedated with a drug called propofol.

    In other news, the surgical team also tried to remove his head, with no success.

    The growths were named Hilary, Barack, John, Joe, and Bill, and are not expected to be fatal for The President, but could however be extremely harmful for the country in general...
