Colon and lower GI health aren’t typically considered standard fare for millennials on social media. Yet here is Bella Thorne standing up recently for the many health benefits of getting regular screenings and colonoscopies.
The NYDN followed up with some physicians, who echoed the sentiment that screenings such as these can actually save lives. As the article noted:
[A] separate study from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center last year predicted that colorectal cancer rates for people ages 20 to 34 will skyrocket 90% for colon cancer and 124.2% for rectal cancer by 2030. And among those ages 35 to 49, incidence rates will jump 27.7% for colon cancer and 46% for rectal cancer.
Colonoscopy isn’t the torture you may have heard about. Although the procedure is briefly uncomfortable, that discomfort typically feels more like pressure than pain. And of course, the benefits far outweigh any momentary considerations of comfort, especially since screenings such as these can prevent and remove polyps, and help patients stop cancer in its tracks.
For safe, secure, and professional colonoscopy in Los Angeles, visit the Proctology Institute in Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, or Huntington Beach. Bella’s right: It could save your life.
