Sorry about your brother and it is so important for everyone to get checkout. It isn't as bad as you may think, in fact it is simple to have a colonoscopy. Thanks for reminding us to get checked for colon cancer.

Hey rolling writer I lost my oler brother on March 11 2007. His one year was just a week ago. Its a rough thing to go through. I wouldnt wish for anyone to go through such a thing.
My thoughts are with you and your brothers family.

RW,
Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

I'm 49, and have had 2 colonoscopies over the last 2 years, each time they found a single polp, and removed it. Biopsy on both were negative for pre-cancerous cells, and now my internist and surgeon say I'm good for another 5 years before my next poop-a-scope. This is nothing to mess around with, get it done, NOW. I and I have no family history either.

my father-in-law is battleing prostate cancer now, and he's winning the battle!

Take care,
Dean

I've been asking my docs for 4 years- they won't send me. The last one said "no need until 50" The latest one, just last month said the same thing. I'm 49 in 3 months.

I'm going to call tomorrow and insist.

Chris,
yeah sometime you have to really get involved with your health care, (IE telling your doc what you think is needed here) Luckly, my wife's side of the family has 1/2 dozen of docs.

I lost my father to colon cancer when he was 50, I was 27, worse suffering I've ever seen. You really hit home here with your advice, I've been getting checked since I was 30. Just to let everyone know the procedure is not a big deal, and after the first one no different than going to the dentist. the peace of mind you get knowing you dont have this cancer is well worth it, Just call your doc tomorrow schedule it and get it done.
