Did you know?
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S., and 90% of colorectal cancer deaths are preventable.
Do not put it off another year.
Colonoscopies should be done every 10 years, beginning at age 50.
This procedure looks inside the rectum and colon for polyps, abnormal areas, or cancer. A colonoscope (a thin, lighted tube) is inserted through the rectum into the colon. Polyps or tissue samples may be taken for biopsy. You will receive sedation, and are not awake, during this procedure.
Colonoscopy, considered the "gold standard" of colorectal cancer screening, is among the most-frequently performed endoscopic procedures. Its purpose is trifold - diagnostic, preventative and interventional. A colonoscopy gets to the bottom of troublesome gastrointestinal symptoms, screens for diseases of the colon and removes precancerous lesions. If necessary, small biopsies may be taken and sent to pathology.
