Colonoscopy statistics

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy statistics


Avatar m tn I'm looking for a good colonoscopy doctor in my area. I'd like some recommendations for someone who has a history for being the best in that industry. I've seen some horror stories on here about colonoscopies gone bad, and I'd like to avoid becoming one of those statistics. Thank you in advance!
Avatar f tn ve had IBS since I was a teenager and had my first colonoscopy when I was 18. Have had about 4-5 since then (now 41). Since my TT (cancerous) and correct levels of my thyroid replacement meds my IBS has resolved itself. Could there me more correlation between age? People in their late 30s+ tend to find thyroid problems and many begin to have colonoscopies when they are 40+ By the way, I have 4 sisters.

10947 tn?1281404252 We hope to launch Tracker Statistics in the near future, which will analyze and calculate various statistics based on the data that you enter into your trackers. For example, we might show the average follicular and luteal phases for the ovulation tracker, or 7-day, 30-day and 90-day trends for the weight tracker. In addition, we might show a list of your most frequent symptoms.
Avatar f tn Not so much a question but just a conversation I guess about herpes Statistics... I have been reading this forum for the last couple of weeks and even answered some questions on here... One thing that I find myself to be skeptical of is the statistics that are given about people who have herpes... Supposedly one in five people have genital herpes and anywhere from 50% to 85% of people have oral herpes... I guess I'm just a little bit doubtful that that many people have this virus...
Avatar m tn One thing I cannot find is actual statistics stating how many people actually experience these side effects. 1in 5? 1in 10? Anyone know?? Thanks!!
Avatar n tn Hey there, I am 33, had blood and mucus for about 2 years and I finally went 3 weeks ago and had colonoscopy and they removed a adanoma polyp which is a precancerous polyp which could eventually turn into colon cancer so do yourself a favor and just demand a colonoscopy and get it done and over with and get a piece of mind. It is really very easy. please keep us updated.
Avatar f tn Having my third colonscopy. I had one eight years ago and I cannot remember feeling so nervous. I had a polyp the first time and it was benign. The second colonoscopy was fine. I'm having a difficult time with feeling hungry and waiting to take the prep this afternoon. I've already started having diaherra because of my nerves. Guess I need to unload and find support on here. Looking forward to hearing from anyone.
Avatar n tn I recently underwent my first baseline colonoscopy. I was lightly sedated, but apparently I was a bit resistant to the scope entering any further than the first few inches of my rectum. It was reported that this was sufficient to determine all was well and it was also recommended I come back again in approximately five years. Do I just need to have more sedation next time or could I have a stenosis that caused me to subconsciously be resistive and uncomfortable. Should I be concerned?

568565 tn?1216785185 I am 37 yrs old. No history of colon cancer in the fam... However, recently one of my employee's husband went on a routine check up. They said since he is 47 he should have a colonoscopy... When he was done with that, he is now doing radiation and chemo... He has full blown cancer all over his pelvis... My gp advised with no history in my family, I am good to wait until I am 50 but if I did have a history of it, she'd recommend that I did it when I was 40...
Avatar n tn I have a half brother that died from colon cancer. My family has a history of polyps, thus I had my first colonoscopy at 37 (2 polyps) then at 46 (2 polyps) All benign thankfully. I've had complete annual physicals for the past 5 years and all good thankfully. I am due for a colonoscopy and am stressing about more polyps. Also have anxiety and that's flaring up because of the colonoscopy. Should I be concerned? Thank you!
