Colon Cancer Screening

Colon cancer is the second deadliest cancer for men and women combined—yet this fatal cancer is also one of the easiest to treat, and beat, with a routine colonoscopy screening. In fact, the procedure can actually prevent the deadly cancer altogether, as providers remove precancerous polyps during the screening before they turn into something more serious. 

Good to Know

The American Cancer Society recommends average-risk individuals start colon cancer screenings at 45, while some health insurance plans may not cover the procedure until patients reach age 50.
