Brief Answer:
Colonoscopy should be done now.

Detailed Answer:
dear madam,
high count is worrisome.
ideally high risk persons should undergo screening colonoscopy once in every 5 years.
as your count is high you should now get a colonoscopy test done.
according to the colonoscopy report we decide about the further plan.
hope you will soon get the root cause of the problem and you will be cured of the disease.
