@Drifter -

My doc, who appears to think for herself instead of just spouting AMA, etc. propaganda, told me this: to alleviate concerns about colon cancer, colonoscopy should be performed only AFTER very benign/non-invasive tests have been performed, e.g., stool sample analyses, etc., and indicate that you actually may have a potential cancer problem.

Those simple/benign tests, of course, are very cheap and provide very little profit to the medical industry, so docs/hospitals tend to push people directly to colonoscopy. She did recommended that stool sample tests be performed as part of "normal", periodic general check-ups.
