  a 37 year old woman gravida 3 para 3 comes to the physician for a routine health maintenance examination. 1 year ago her cholesterol was 260 & was starte on low fat diet. No hst of serious iliness. Pap smear during 10 years was normal & last was last 1 yr ago. Mother has DM and father died of colon cancer at 62. Married for 15 years. 5,2 and 77kg-170 lb. BMI 31. Next step?

A- Colonoscopy
D-Measurement of serum cholesterol concentration

- I was more worried about family history of colon cancer more than her cholesterol so I went for A. Why am I wrong?
