A COLONOSCOPY COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
Getting a colonoscopy is the best way to prevent colon cancer. Pre-cancerous polyps are removed during a colonoscopy BEFORE they develop into cancer. While there are other screening methods, a colonoscopy is the only one that allows your doctor to examine the entire colon for signs of cancer and remove polyps in one procedure.
Who Should Have a Colonoscopy?• Everyone age 50 and older
• Anyone with a family history of cancer, especially colorectal cancer
• Anyone having frequent diarrhea, constipation or blood in their stool
