In the USA, colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the cancers.
Funny because it is also one of the most preventable.
If you are age 50 or over, you may want to discuss with your doctor, having a colonoscopy.
I was having some issues is why I had the colonoscopy. I did not take those issues lightly.
Always listen to your body. It was found I had internal hemorrhoids and two polyps. The
polyps were removed during the procedure and two biopsies will be performed on each.
However, according to the doctor, it was the internal hemorrhoids causing my bleeding.
Of course, I won't know full results until the biopsies reports come in, in about ten days.
I want you to know, the colonoscopy procedure was a breeze. I'd prefer to have a colonoscopy
any day rather than go to the dentist! Seriously, the only bad thing about having a colonoscopy,
is the prep the day before and it's not so bad really.
I watched this before I had the colonoscopy, just to get me in a good mood:

That is not a ref link.
Remember, if you are in the USA and you are age 50 or older, strongly consider this procedure.
