Cancer: Colon Message Board

Cancer: Colon Board Index


Unfortunately, even medical professionals are ill-informed about the risks. BOTTOM LINE is NO MATTER HOW OLD YOUR ARE, if YOU ARE BLEEDING RECTALLY, you NEED TO HAVE A COLONOSCOPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the mistake... people think that cancer can only occur in older people. This simply ISN'T TRUE!! Kewpie, WHY do you keep coming up with excuses not to seek professional help? We have all been there, and wouldn't it feel nice to know what's going on?

Asking why get checked because it's rare in young people is like saying I don't need insurance on my car or house, because there isn't a great chance of anything happening anyway.

BTW I told of the family history I was asked about, my GP didn't seem to feel it important about my grandfather. There apparently is debate on that, although most professionals seem to agree that a complete history INCLUDES grandparents.

Stop focusing on ME Kewpie, or others on this board. It only gives you reason to justify in your mind why you shouldn't have the procedure. None of the justifications are valid. If you are bleeding/have been bleeding, you NEED a colonoscopy by a GI Specialist. It's as simple as that!

Good Luck Kewpie. Please come back and visit us once you have had the test.
