Q

Do young people have to get a colonoscopy?

Could it be possible for someone in their 30s or younger to get a colonoscopy? Or is the procedure only reserved for people who are older? If so, why?

Healthcare Providers (1)

Younger people would need a colonoscopy only if they have symptoms such as gastrointestinal bleeding or diarrhea, or if they have a family history of colon cancer.
