Just a quick update... My Dad found out late this afternoon that it is not cancer!!! It was a mass that was about to turn into cancer but the doctor says had my dad caught it just in time.
So my PSA of the day, go get a super uncomfortable, don't even want to think about it, certaintly don't want to talk about it, colonoscopy. Get one at 50 if you have no family history and at 40 if you do. And yes, that is by far the least gross picture I could find of a colon; don't go google searching organs aparently, yuck. Yay, happy 40th birthday present to me in many years :)
