Screening & Prevention (Colonoscopy)

Colorectal cancer is the nation’s second leading cause of cancer-related death, but it doesn’t have to be. With appropriate screening, colorectal cancer can be prevented. Screening for colorectal cancer is recommended to begin at age 50 (45 for African American males), or earlier if you have a family history of colorectal cancer. Talk to your doctor about the various screening options.
