Senior health care: testing for colon cancer

Gettin' a little personal here, eh! But something everyone should be aware of. You don't need to be a senior care expert to know that as we age we tend to have more problems with diarrhea and/or constipation; even hemorrhoids. But remember, this is not JUST a 'senior health' problem. Are you aware hemorrhoids can develop internally in the colon? If they burst, they cause bleeding in the bowel. If any of these indications occur to us, we should see our doctor and discuss the probability of having a colonoscopy. This is a 'definite' for early detection of colon cancer possibilities.
