Colonoscopy Screenings Can Save Lives
Colorectal cancer, also called colon cancer, is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that as many as 60 percent of colorectal cancer deaths could be prevented if everyone 50 years or older were screened routinely. Screening tests, like a colonoscopy, can find and remove precancerous growths in the colon before they turn into cancer, and diagnose colon cancer early when treatment is most successful.
