Screening for Colorectal Cancer, Ulcers & More

A colonoscopy is a diagnostic procedure where a tiny camera is used to look inside the rectum and colon. Colorectal cancer is the number two leading cause of cancer deaths among men and women in the U.S. combined, according to the Colorectal Cancer Coalition. Men and women should have a colonoscopy or some form of colon cancer screening after the age of 50. Testing is then recommended every ten years.

A colonoscopy can help your doctor identify:

  • Colorectal cancer
  • Polyps
  • Ulcers
  • Bleeding
  • Inflamed tissue
  • Other unexplained symptoms
