Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

I'm 2 years in remission after being diagnosed, and treated for Vaginal Cancer. I was wondering if anyone has experienced Radiation Proctitis as a side effect? I have had 2 occasions with blood in my stool. I'm tested on a regular basis, and just recently had a colonoscopy with no cancer or polyps. However, they did see radiation proctitis and have given me a script in case it occured again. It occured again tonight and I'm just wondering how common this is? My next check up is first week of Dec. I have no pain or discomfort, just the blood in the stool. Thanks for any advice.
