One of my parents had colon cancer.  Am I at risk?

Your primary care physician may want to reduce any risk of cancer by ordering a baseline colonoscopy before the age of 50. This procedure is identical to a screening or routine colonoscopy in that the inner lining of the colon is examined and any polyps are biopsied and may be removed.  Specific risk due to familial circumstances should be discussed at length with your primary care physician, or Gastroenterologist.
