Talking to Your Doctor Sooner Could Prevent Colon Cancer
Doctors used to recommend that patients get a colonoscopy at 50. They’re now recommending the exam for patients as young as 45. A colonoscopy is an important piece of everyone’s checklist for staying healthy, especially since it can be more than just an exam— it can actually help prevent colon cancer. The procedure can be used to detect and remove polyps that may become cancerous and spot other developing GI problems.
Talk to a GI care specialist about having a colonoscopy. In 15 to 30 minutes, a doctor can identify problems, prescribe the right treatment or issue a clean bill of health.
