Re: My appointment yesterday...I am OK
I agree - you absolutely should have a colonoscopy. Internal hemorrhoids can exist along with cancerous or precancerous polyps. I hope those of you who were misdiagnosed because your MD thought you were too young to have colon cancer will relay their experiences here. The Colon Club is loaded with young people (as young as 16) who couldn't possibly have colon cancer but did. There is a calendar called the Colandar put out by the Colon Club that features young men and women with colon cancer. Anyway I sure hope your MD is correct that it is nothing to be concerned about, but the only way to know for sure is to get that colonoscopy - the gold standard of colon screening done.
