Don't wait. I just had my 20ish one done this week. Saved my life having one about 15 years ago.Pretty young for colon cancer, too. I get to look forward to early screens for that starting at 40. Runs bad on my dad's side.
I thought it was 40. Honestly, it should be 30 or 35. Don't put it off people.50 is the typical recommended age for your first colonoscopy if you are average risk (no family history, nonsmoker, not doing that "stuff", etc.) This makes me want to start going at 40.
My family has zero history of cancer, yet my sister is halfway through chemo for lymphoma. Let them finger your butt.My doctor told me at my 40 year-old check up that since there is zero family history I shouldn't get one until I am 50.
