I’m 79 years old. Both of my parents had CRC and my mother died of it at 82. At my last colonoscopy, I was told that because I was over 75, I didn’t need any more screenings. I don’t understand his reasoning. Please comment.

can you currently take pills instead of
the liquid prep

Thank you. Per your question, the pill base prep can be even more difficult and have more complication than the liquid prep. Its not generally advised.

If someone has abdominal bengin tumor or nodule as described under age 40 and no cancer appearance (already biopsied). How often should it be monitored and are there any special way to get it removed or should it just be monitored? Tnx!

We are pleased to hear that the tumor was benign. We would need more details to provide any recommendations on treatment. You will need to contact your health provider for more information. Feel free to reach to Mayo Clinic for a second opinion. Thanks for attending our webinar.

Does moving your bowels frequently help lessen the risk of developing colon cancer? Does using a squat potty help?
Thank You

I am 65+ and have had a colonectomy 5 years ago for removal of a large 3.1 cm. polyp attached to the colon wall. I’ve had one colonoscopy since with no more polyps and no cancer at any time. What are Mayo Clinic’s dietary recommendations to prevent colon cancer–in particular amount of red meat permissible? Any other dietary recommendations? Aside from osteoporosis I am in good health, keep up with all screenings, weigh 126# and exercise 5x/week.
