    A year old thread, but I'm going to bring it back to life.

    My maternal grandmother had 18 inches of cancerous colon removed back in the late 70s. She lived to age 97 with no recurrence. My mother underwent surgery for colon cancer in 1995, but during the operation the doctors discovered that the cancer had spread into her liver; she passed away less than two years later.

    I've had half a dozen colonoscopies since then, because of my family history. The only thing found has been a few polyps, which were removed during the procedure and before anything could develop.

    Colonoscopies save lives. If your doctor recommends it, get 'er done. It's easy, and sure beats the alternative. I have two grandchildren that I have promised to be here for, and help grow up.

    I had one. Just routine but worth it. I understand most men find the idea of medics poking around our private areas unpleasant. Completely normal reaction. But, it could save your life which is a pretty serious matter. I have seen people I know die early and quickly from illness that may have been caught earlier. One went in a month! Not nice.

    Helps if the doctor has a sense of humor. My last one, a year ago was in part because my red blood cell count dropped. The day of the procedure, the doctor told me, if he didn't see any problems up there he wanted to do an upper GI. I asked him to wipe off the camera first. He said they use a different rig. Afterwards I come to and he walks in and asks "do you have a funny taste in your mouth?" He gave me an all clear and come back in 10 years.

    Seriously, get over your pride, fear, whatever; easy procedure to prevent a horrible way to die.
