NASSAU, BAHAMAS – It starts with a routine annual checkup, blood work to check your blood count. Dr. Gemma Rolle is a gastroenterologist.

Unfortunately, she is often the bearer of bad news to male patients coming for care only after they recognize something is wrong. 

Her first bit of advice – go see your doctor regularly, even if you feel fine. 

In my case as an over-50 man with a family history of cancer, the risks are high. 

So, I decided to submit to colonoscopy.

As Dr. Rolle and I prepared for the procedure we talked about the inherent risks I faced. 

From this consultation, days later Dr. Rolle performed my colonoscopy. 

Rolle and her team performed the procedure in about an hour, while I slept comfortably and completely unaware from the anesthesia. 

When I woke up, we talked about what she found and the course of action taken, to ensure I remained cancer-free.
