Hey Pen? Quick question for us Men, Colon Cancer - Prostate Cancer etc.
Isn't normal protocol to get "checked" for those at age 50 right? But when they say family history to do so earlier.......... two questions.
1. What is considred family history? Is it mother father brother sister? Or does it go all the way to grand parents aunts and uncles?
2. If family history then what age for those tests?
Not hijacking this thread but its good for all us aging Geeks to think about.
so my dad, uncle, and grandpas both died from prostate cancer or related. Grandpas in their 80's dad and uncle in their 60's, so I started getting checked at 30, prostate exam and everything. Once you get past that first time, it really isnt a big deal, I get em every 5 years, and do a PSA blood test. I see no harm in getting em earlier. Quite frankly most of our cancers are going to come from processed crap we eat, and I think family history has very little to do with it
