June 11, 2013 at 06:53 | Report abuse | metoo Having lost my mother and grandmother to colon cancer, my Aunt having her colon totally removed and having the Dr find polyps in my last 4 scopes, my Dr. recommended a blood test. That is before he knew the test would cost $3,000. and of course insurance doesn't cover any part of it. So the YEARLY scope is my only choice. But it would be nice to know for sure before developing cancer so the next generation can be properly educated and prepared to start their life of scopes earlier and not the recommended age 50-60.

I had my colon removed because I had too many polyps and they were all precancerous as I have a gene that predisposes me to colon cancer. you could look here

That tells Nancy that people aren't getting screened. She said, 24 hours of preparation beats a year of radiation and chemotherapy and I had both." Her daughter, Katie, knows the process. She underwent her first colonoscopy at 21 and told us about the preliminary fluid intake saying, It's not the most horrible tasting."
