A colonoscopy is a screening that can identify cancers early, when the odds of successful treatment are highest. It can also help find polyps that can be removed before they become cancerous.
Whether you begin at 45 or earlier if you’re at higher risk, the important thing is that you get screened. Colorectal cancers are one of the most common cancers diagnosed in both men and women. And while the majority of these cases occur in people 50 and older, the disease can happen to men and women at any age.
