#1 get screened yearly

watch you diet, low fat and eat lots of fibre.


Very sorry to hear about your dad.
Colon cancer is one that can be prevented if you screen for it, they can remove pollups.

A diet high in fiber has been known to decrease chances of colon cancer. Keep an high on your bowel movenments and that they are regular. Once a day is pretty regular and that they are formed, soft of brown color.

Talk to your primarly dr bout this and schedule regular colonoscopies...

I wish you luck in your healthy and smart approach

Colon Cancer is the MOST preventable cancer and so many people DONT get checked. A Colonoscopy only needs to be done every three to five years. For more information check out Dr. Oz's book! (he was on Oprah)

You will need a colonoscopy more often than normal because you are predisposed to the disease.
A diet high in fiber and low in fat is recommended.
My father too died of Colo-rectal cancer.
It spreads from the colon to the liver and then everywhere after that if not caught in the early stages.
The colonoscopy is nothing to worry about.
I've had several and they put you in a twilight sleep and you'll never feel a thing.

Eat healthy foods . When you get to be 40 see a GI doctor, Colon cancer is one of the most preventable cancers , but the whole concept is to be checked regularly by a doctor when you are older.

A high fiber diet is always recommended. And a colonoscopy exam every 3-5 years.

Do this, and I bet you'll head off trouble with this problem.

There were 16 cancer victims in my mother's family.
Of those, 13 had colon cancer.
The surgeon told us that we have a genetic predisposition to the disease.
He told me, "If I had 1 drop of your family's blood in veins, I'd never eat red meat again."

Nobody can sure anything about cancer.

Oatmeal can lower 50% risk.

B6 cuts 70% risk.

People consume a dish of mixed fresh herbs daily like chopped garlics, mints, basils, leek, chive, sweet wormwood, catnips, bean strouts, etc. almost dont have colon cancer!

Apple skin and Coriolus versicolor or reishi tea drink can help loose stool daily.
That may help. http://www.mushroomcompany.com/farms/ind...
