" tim seaman: i'd recieved the reminder letters and answered the followup c cls before. drdrbryce robison: "t"ts is a really eat time for you to do it. just get a screen to make sure you're allright," said dr. bryce robison. "hey good morning tim" tim seaman: like alot of men, trips to see my family doc, bryce robison are only when required. so getting a colonoscopy, wasn't something i put in my planner. dr. bryce robison: "guys just dont like not having control," said dr. robison. " it's a good idea to just check it out becasue 8 out of 10 people dont ever know they have colon cancer they just dont get symptoms so thats why its pretty important to screen," added robison. tim seaman: in fact in the united states about 1 of every 22 people will experience colon cancer. 95,000 new cases are expect just this eyar. colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the united ates, with more than 49,000 deaths this year alone. but by having a colonoscopy and being screened we can avoid being a statistic.

thths why, at times our doctors can bepretty persistant. "t"ts is something we do on a daily basis," added dr. robison. in the end, dr robison says most patients have the same conclussion.. "they say i don't know why i waited so long, it was such an easy procedure it was really no big deal," said robison. tim seaman: morningside barber ron harris has been more than 50 years. "i was fine, you're wasn't gaining weight anything like that so no everything was just fine," said ron harris. tim seaman: just like me, ron waited until well past his 50th birthday to schedule his first colonoscopy. mondayay mean tuesday and he found stage 3 cancer through the lining or attached to something," said
10:04 pm
tim seaman: that was in 2003. "they took out 18 inches. if i had gone when i was 55 stead of 57 probably would have been nothing more than a polyp they would have burned it off and that would have been the end of the story right there," said harris. tim seaman: instead, like too many others ron traded off the anxiety of a colonoscopy for 6 months of chemo- theropy and 28 radiation treatments. luckily, he's cancer free since 2008. his message for me andperhaps you? get it done ! "i dont know why you wouldn't. it's just not that big of a deal. the prep thing is the worst, they make grape and cherry and none if it is very good," laughed harris. tim seaman: but times are changing. from that colon cleansing prep to the anesthesia, a more user friendly colonoscopy is being done. and tomorrow night you can see for yourself when i get my first colonoscopy, and discover it really wasn't worthwaiting and riskinina trip to the e ncer center. tim -jenna on cam (chat)
