I will not share this because we need to bring awareness this hits prior to 50 without crones or family history. Making a video like this I’d think you’d be aware of that. Suicide Awareness angel I am proud of who i am today the battle almost killed me My husband, full on stage 4, terminal, inoperable at age 44. Started 10 years prior. He has ZERO family history, he was healthy, no crones and I know so many more like this! We have to advocate for earlier screenings!

There are two types of colonoscopy. Routine and medical. If anything is found during a routine colonoscopy it becomes a medical colonoscopy. Since I have a chronic disease in the colon/small bowel (crohns disease) there will always be something found. My insurance will only cover routine coloscopy over the age of 55. it suggested screening at age 50 or for higher risk with family history or crones. Regular screening needs to start sooner than age 50 without the risk factors
The actual language in the video is: “The best age to initiate screening varies from person to person. If you have access to health care, it’s best to consult a doctor to find out when you should begin.” mom and dad were big on healthy lifestyles and food, i guess its a combination of lots of factors and genetics is one of them, my grandmother too had cancer a rare type of sarcoma, Suicide Awareness angel I am proud of who i am today the battle almost killed me. I guess i can keep up with the healthy lifestyle and such and hope for the best! I’m not scared of dying, for me, i lost my fear of death when i lost my parents, 8 months apart from each other, but i saw what cancer can do to you, not the chemo, just the cancer itself, cause both of my parents didn’t survive to get to chemo, Its agony. If i have a say in it, i would like to have a sudden death. Sorry for the long rant I would like to see this video being a mandatory viewing in all High School health classes and repeated again in 4th year College classes. As a 12 year survivor, I have seen repeated examples of both sexes younger than 35. ax the video pointed out, the growth period of a Cancer in the Colon can/ is 10 years. Meaning a screening should be done at 25?
