A Colonoscopy can save your life.
Do you know when to have one?
March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness month. It was officially designated by President Clinton in 2000 to spread colon cancer awareness about prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the US.
Early detection is vital. Despite its high incidence, colon cancer is one of the most detectable and, if found early enough, most treatable forms of cancer. In many cases, screening can prevent colon cancer by finding and removing polyps before they become cancer. Everyone should be screened at age 50, but anyone with a family history of either of these diseases should be screened early and frequently. They should be screened at least 10 years earlier than the age of which their family member was diagnosed.
