Bowel cancer runs in my family and I have colonoscopies every 5 years. However I have heard it is now affecting more young people in greater numbers.
That's what my specialist said and wants my girls to start in a couple of years. I have IBS and have on every 5 years.
It runs in my dh side of the fsmily, now his dad has been battling it at 82 and a nephew has polyps removed a couple of years back at 25.
I have the breast and cervical cancer, diabetes and heart disease in my mother's side. I get regular testing there as well.
