For those of you that are not fond of hoses and tubes getting inserted up your butt, there's another option, a less invasive method, for colorectal health screening. I have needed scopes since I was 16 or 17, so the traditional scope doesn't bother me. Some people that I know won't even consider getting screened because of embarrassment or because they think they are fine. People that neglect this kind of screening are really neglecting their health and chancing it. Colon cancer doesn't have to be fatal. Screenings are the only way to catch something abnormal. Because there are no symptoms until it's too late, the screening is the only way to know if something is brewing and needs to be treated or addressed. Yay!!! for more patient options! Now pick one and be healthy.
