I was advised to get screened for colorectal cancer when I turned 50 by my doctor. I told him I wanted to wait a while and decided to put it off until he asked me to do it again. Finally, after turning 55 and much prompting from my friend, I mentioned it to my doctor and he told me it was a smart thing to get done and he couldn’t believe I hadn’t done it already!
The experience turned out to be quite nice and the environment was very comfortable and inviting. This is such an easy procedure; it was as if I took a nap and woke up and it was over.
I can understand the hesitation to get screened, but it’s worth it and necessary in order for people to take preventive measures, as I did have a pre-cancer polyp. After a certain age, good health comes from being proactive.
I encourage others to talk to their doctor about their options and then share your experience with friends and family.
