Is It Time to Consider a Colonoscopy?

It’s not something anyone wants to think about, but deciding to get a colonoscopy is an important step in staying healthy. Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Are you 45 or older?
  2. Do you have a personal history of colon polyps?
  3. Do you have inherited forms of colorectal polyps or cancers?
  4. Do you have predisposing chronic digestive conditions?
  5. Have you experienced rectal bleeding, change in stool color or bowel habits?
  6. Do you experience crampy abdominal pain?
  7. Have you tested positive for iron deficiency anemia?

 

If you answered “Yes” to at least one of these questions, it’s time to get a colonoscopy.
