Having 20 years experience in the medical field I can attest to the fact that colon cancer is one of the least “enjoyable” types of cancer there is.At my last colonoscopy they found several polyps and,as a result,I have to be monitored every three years instead of every 10.And I plan to follow that advice....if OsamaObamaCare will allow it for a creepy a$$ cracker like myself.

Some people are just moderate @$$4013$, in which case, you could refer to them as semi-colons.

I wonder what their interactive display for venereal disease will look like?

Strollin through the colon...

Had it here in salisbury at the health fest...

Seeing what the colon looks like with polyps and lesions does nothing for us who are under anethstesia when a colonoscopy is performed...

After i left the strollin colon,i felt like shiite.

The country of Panama seems to be ambivalent about the alimentary canal. They have a city named Colon, but also something called the Colon Free Zone.

Incidence of colorectal cancer is only about 35/100,000.

Have no family history of cancer; no way will I risk perforation or infection with a colonoscopy.
