1. Experts agree that Colonoscopy is the “gold standard” for diagnosing and preventing Colon cancer. It is recommended for all adults starting at age 50 (45 if you are African-American). However, you may require earlier screening if you have a family history of Colon cancer, change in bowel habits, rectal bleeding, anemia or unintended weight loss. Some studies have shown that Colonoscopy detects over 98% of significant colorectal tumors and removes them. Here are some warning signs that may indicate colorectal cancer:
    Blood in the stoul (bright red, black or very dark)
    Change in bowel habits (diarrhea or constipation)
    Narrowed stouls (about the thickness of a pencil)
    Unexplained anemia
    Rectal bleeding
    Weight loss without dieting
    Continuing fatigue

  5. If you are over age 40 and are having heartburn or "indigestion" for the first time it is important that you see a physician as soon as possible. People who are experiencing angina (decreased blood flow to the heart) may experience what they consider heartburn or indigestion. If you know you have heartburn that has been occurring for a long period of time, an evaluation by a gastroenterologist is important.
