New study questions the effectiveness of colonoscopies

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Interesting reading. I think it’s inconclusive.
Had my first colonoscopy a month ago along with a chest x ray, 9 blood tests and an abdominal scan.

I don’t see the point of random colonoscopies as I’d have thought the resource could be put to better use. However targeted screening of adults with symptoms of colorectal cancer is surely already a proven success.
