I have nothing to do with the fees.
We are only paid by just answer per positive rating.
We do not do testing, exam or diagnosis.
I am simply giving you correct medical information.
There is a higher risk to not having a colonoscopy.
One can check the stool for blood, or do a flex sig, which is not as good.
HOwever, in the case where stool habits have changed, colonoscopy assures the best preventative outcomes.
As to this test, that is totally up to you.
You asked about green stool.
ANYTHING that increases stool motility, as I said, even IBS can cause it.
However, in terms of medical accuracy, in someone over 50, one can not diagnose IBS fully without the screening tests, as IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion.
These are simply the medical standards. My goal is to give you accurate answers.
Is green stool likely to be something like cancer? No.
Does that mean you should NOT have the screening? No.
Please click a positive rating so I am paid by just answer, OR, if you still have questions let me know.
Also see my additional services offer and I can go into prevention [naturally] extensively.
I am a double board certified US doctor.
