Nose cancer

I am sad to find out that my sister's friend has got nose cancer. It is scary to know about cancer as one of my classmates told me that her sister passed away due to colon cancer at age 35. She passed away on 3 June 2009, just a few days ago.

She told me that she passed away in such a great pain. She sms me "sakit sampai mati" which mean pain until death. My condolence to WPS's family, it is tearful to lose someone we loved.

Hello,

Thanks for sharing.

I have a friend that’s fighting stage 4 colon cancer so I know what a dreadful disease it is.

I had my first colonoscopy at age 50. A polyp was found and removed. I’m now 58 and I had my second colonoscopy a few weeks ago. Nothing was found this time.

I just want to remind and encourage everyone to get screened for colon cancer. The procedure itself (colonoscopy) is not painful, with the possible exception of the I.V. The preparation the day before is a little inconvenient. Plan to be close to a bathroom.

The ‘official’ guideline is to have a colonoscopy if you are older than 50 and every 10 years thereafter. That is, if you’re at average risk. Check with your physician. Schedule an appointment today!

hi mike, thanks for sharing. Yeah it is important to get screened for colon cancer. Many people do know they had it until last minute.
