One Colonoscopy Enough?

1 colonoscopy may be enough for a lifetime | Fox News.

Do you ever consider how many medical procedures we have on in a life-time that may not be necessary?  Having had an uncle with colon cancer and having had a colonoscopy myself, I can certainly stress the importance of this procedure to detect cancer or precancerous growths.  According to this article, you may need only one colonoscopy in a life-time.  There are other forms of screenings for such problems other than a yearly colonoscopy.  For example, getting a yearly stool sample (checking for blood).  These other options are much cheaper and are less time consuming.  Check out this article for more information.
