Get A Colonoscopy



If you're over 50, you should get a colonoscopy to check for colon cancer. The doctor removes any polyps he finds so the procedure actually PREVENTS colon cancer from developing.

More Information:

I recently had my first colonoscopy at the age of 55 and they found 3 polyps. I'm so glad I don't have to worry about colon cancer for at least 5 years.
