    Colonoscopy every three years

    Other Care

    Three years if the polyps are negative. Repeated in six months if cancerous. I personally have a Grandmother,great aunt , Mother all on the maternal side and my Dad. Dad and I were caught early the others died from it. Early detection is key.

    In addition, this year I was diagnosed with Crohn's

    Symptoms

    This is another reason to keep a check on colon polyps/ colon cancer.
