Why do you want to have a colonoscopy?
Because all the health news says everyone over 50 should have one. No family history or symtoms...just trying to take care of my health...thanks
There is no good evidence for that.
Screening over 60's with tests for microscopic traces of blood and then scoping those who test positive is worthwhile - scoping everyone over 50 has no evidence base.
