colon cancer :/

I don't think there is really an age limit under which you'd be immune to any form of cancer. The risk of getting them just shoots up later in life. The 40 year mark is just an average of the age where the risk is generally grown higher for most people and checks should be made.

I don't think there is a problem with getting tested now

I doubt there is an age limit - if you are unsure ask your doctor first and see what they say, if it will give you peace of mind, then I would go for it...

If you have any of the symptoms, get tested. If you have a family history, get tested.

There really isnt an age limit, just a guideline. Because of my family history, I have to start getting tested sometime between the age of 25 and the age of 30.
