A Colonoscopy Screening Can Help Save Your Life
COLORECTAL CANCER IS THE 2ND LEADING CAUSE OF CANCER-RELATED DEATHS AMONG ADULTS IN THE U.S.
Colon cancer doesn’t always show signs. That’s why it’s important to regularly schedule a colon screening. According to the American Cancer Society, colonoscopy screenings and polyp removal help prevent colon cancer and decrease the number of colorectal cancer deaths.
When Do You Need a Colonoscopy?
Once a person turns 50 is when colonoscopies should begin to be scheduled. A colonoscopy is a colon cancer screening procedure that is a proven method for cancerous detection.
A colonoscopy should be performed every ten years unless polyps are found during the first exam. Aside from polyps, there are other symptoms that you need to be aware of that can point to colon cancer and the need for a colonoscopy.
