In the last year I have had digestive issues (heartburn, change in bowel movements) that have lead me to seek care with a GI doc. I'm scheduled for a colonoscopy and EGD in a week. My big question is my brother (younger) at the age of 20+ (10 yrs ago) had a colonoscopy and he had two polyps, 1 benign the other precancerous. Now that I'm having these changes in bowel movements and some stomach pain I am concerned and would like to hear some other stories that are similar to mine. I would just like to know how many people have had siblings, especially at such a young age, with similar stories. Let me say that I'm 33 and have been in otherwise good health, not overweight, and exercise fairly regularly.
