In brief: Get a colonscopy

Why was the sigmoidscopy reccomneed.
Consider a full colonoscopy if you are concerned about colon cancer,such as having rectal bleeding, strong family history of colon cancer, etc. Although you are young for a screening colonscopy if you have any alarm features please do not stop at sigmoidscopy instead get a colonscopy.
