Colonoscopies Save Lives

Recommended at age 45

If you’re 45 or older, it’s time for a screening colonoscopy. We know you don’t like to think about it, and the prep can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. But in the scheme of things, it is a minor inconvenience considering that colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women.

A colonoscopy screens for pre-cancer and cancer. Colonoscopies can show irritated or swollen tissues, ulcers, polyps and cancer. Early detection of colorectal cancer is easier to treat.
