I have been retired for 7 years now and was rated at 60% for various disabilities after I retired. One month after I retired, I had a colonoscopy; benign polyps (i.e. benign neoplasms), a type that could turn to cancer, were found and removed. I have had polyps removed twice since then. Now I would like to get my polyps service connected at 0% in case something more serious were to develop in the future. My question: Since my polyps diagnosis was only a month after I retired, do I need a NEXUS letter to say the polyps were "more than likely" to have developed while on active duty, or would it be presumed the polyps developed while I was still on active duty? I looked at the presumptives in Title 38, and I don't think this fell under any of the automatics. Thanks for any help.
