Yes, it's more hereditary in males than it is in females.
anyone can get colon cancer.
essentially the same for men and women
answer my ? n keep it going lol
i dont ******* kno ask the damn doctor
Yes they do. Colon cancer risk is mainly age related, and only peripherally gender related. The risk of males getting colon cancer is nearly identical to the one of females being a full 5 years older. This means that at the same age, men have a substantially greater risk of getting colon cancer than women.
Keep in mind that this overall risk is extremely low. For a men 50 years old or a woman of 55 years old, the risk is only 0.06%. For a man of 60 years old or a woman of 65 years old, the risk rises to 0.14% (still extremely low).
Please note, per several contrarian doctors colon cancer is becoming overtested in the U.S. This is in good part because the risk that a colonoscopy procedure perforates your intestine (a really bad thing) is actually much higher than the colon cancer risk.
In view of the above, even if you are a man I would not get a colonoscopy asap. First, I would research my family history to assess what is the urgency of taking such an invasive test.
