I don't have no symptoms I'm not bleeding
Expert:  Dr Stan replied 9 months ago.

The test can be positive while taking aspirin even though you can't see any blood. The best way to know if the positive test is from the aspirin is to stop aspirin for 10 days and repeat the test. You say you are 50. At your age you should have a colonoscopy with or without symptoms. The test is paid for by all medical insurance policeys and should not come with a deductible or co-pay. It is good that you have no symptoms but a colonoscopy now could save you problems in the future. I hope this is helpful and you continue to feel well. A positive rating is always appreciated.

Does that mean I'm not in risk?plus I have no family members history
Expert:  Dr Stan replied 9 months ago.

If you're referring to risk of recto-colon cancer, that's what the colonoscopy will determine. I wish you the best and your risk is lessened by the fact that you have no family history of recto-colon cancer.
