i hit menopause at around my 40`s just a few days ago i saw my obgyn and she seamed very concerned about it. so I`ve taken a delfa bone scan i have to have a colonoscopy done plus a mammogram. i don`t have any of the results yet plus i am on a lot of medican but i haven`t been on this much since my 40`s my obgyn is making think there could be cancer, is this true?
Menopause is considered normal from age 41-55. Colonoscopy is generally recommended at age 50 and older unless you had colon cancer in the family at a very young age.
