Colon Cancer Screening

The most effective prevention for colorectal cancer is early detection and removal of precancerous colorectal polyps before they turn cancerous. Even in cases where cancer has already developed, early detection still significantly improves the chances of a cure by surgically removing cancer before the disease spreads to other organs. It is recommended that anyone above the age of 45 have colon cancer screening by colonoscopy.
