Yet it’s a highly preventable cancer.
Recently, the recommended age for routine colorectal screening was lowered from 50 to 45 if you have no family history or other risk factors — sooner if you do.

This state-of-the-art endoscopy center features the latest technology and experienced, board certified gastroenterologists. The center enjoys a patient-satisfaction rate in the high 90s, and because they’re an ambulatory surgery center, they can offer your screening at a third of the cost of a hospital.
They offer direct access screening colonoscopies, which means if you’re of screening age, have no family history of colon cancer, and aren’t currently experiencing any GI symptoms, you can schedule your colonoscopy procedure without an office visit.

DID YOU KNOW?
A colonoscopy is the only screening option that can both detect and prevent colon cancer by detecting and removing precancerous polyps. A screening colonoscopy is usually only needed once every 10 years for people at average risk. At home stool-based tests are also available, however they may miss some colon cancers and most precancerous polyps. When at home tests are positive, a colonoscopy is recommended.
