Cancer: Colon Message Board

Cancer: Colon Board Index

Hi there. I just want to tell you not to put off the colonoscopy. I have had 12 of them in my 50 years....too many people in my family have died from colon cancer- none of them have been scoped! I go every 3 years now and have since my twenties. It is such an easy test.

On a positive note, colon cancer is totally curable! As long as you have this test and they remove anything that might be causing your bleed- polpys, blockages, etc, it is 100% that you will be cured! Its good that you have the test coming up.

Try not to worry, the worst case scenario is they find things to are being proactive at this time. Colon cancer is also extremely slow growing- so the three years that you waited really wont make that much of a difference. You are going to be fine. Come back and tell us how you are doing after the test.
