If there is a history of colon cancer in your family then you should have your first colonoscopy 10 yrs before the age the person was diagnosed.

Depending on your family history you may already be overdue for a colonoscopy.
Due to our family history my 13 yr old ds, my 17 yr old neice and my 19, 22 and 26 yr old kids and 26 yr old neice and my 21 yr old nephew, have all had colonoscopy's this year.

Call your doctor now.

i think of colon maximum cancers grows fairly sluggish. go get it executed, exceedingly once you're scared! might you particularly no longer understand, and then or no longer it particularly is too late? it particularly is treatable if caught early, and because you had a sparkling colonoscopy at the form of youthful age, no longer that throughout the past, then i think of the dr is in all likelihood dazzling on the subject of the full spastic colon factor. basically go get it executed, and ask on the subject of the hot ultrasound they have, i'm undecided if all of us dose it yet, yet they say pairing the two jointly, makes the effect clearer. And, in case you doubt the dr, get a 2nd or third or 4th opinion! yet, do no longer hesitate anymore!

Yes you could. Go to the MD and get yourself checked out. Especially with a history of it in your family. If everything comes out normal, get yourself to an acupuncturist/herbalist. They have tools that will be able to help with all of these conditions, and maybe ward off cancer in the future. There is no doubt that you have a predisposition.

Everyday, people are discovering they have cancer at younger and younger ages.
The old advice to not worry about it until you're 40 or 50 is just not good advice any more.

During my cancer treatment, I saw very young women - some in their teens, being treated for everything from colon and bladder cancer to breast cancer (usually thought to be an "older woman's disease).
With those symptoms, insist on getting tested as soon as possible.
The earlier the detection, the better the chances.
Don't wait.
