    I know that screening colonoscopy starts ae 50 and every 10 years after that;
    or...

    flex sig every 5-10 years

    those with family Hx start age 40

    Do they increase the frequency of colonoscopy to every 5 years with positive Family Hx?

    Do we need to know these sorts of things for Step 1? Seems like more of a Step 2 question.

    Yeah this definitely is not a Step 1 question. No worries.
