Cancer: Colon Message Board


Cancer: Colon Board Index


I understand how afraid you must be. I too was afraid of a colonoscopy and now at 62 I have colon cancer. I should have had one done when I was in my 50s.

You are young the odds are in your favor, but do not be afraid of a colonoscopy like I was.

There is a pediatric size tube they use that is only about 10mm. That is about the size of a woman's pinkie finger. Actually my doc examined my rectum with his pinkie finger because I was afraid to be touched with anything. He was very gentle and it did not hurt. Don't be afraid to discuss this with your doc. If he or she is not understanding, find one who is.

Good luck to you,
bamc
