Both my parents had colon cancer, and eventually died from it.(both caught very late)
Because of that, I get a colonoscopy every 3 to 5 years . The next one he is scheduling a bit before the third year(polyps found last scope) This is how he found my Colitis.
My daughter just turned 45.
With the family history should she start getting hers earlier than the age 50 they recommend?
She asked 2 different docs and got 2 different answers.
Gyno said get one now.
The regular MD, said no rush.
Should I just call my doc and ask him?
