A colonoscopy is the most effective screening tool for colon cancer. Colonoscopies are recommended for people age 50 and older who are at average risk for colon cancer. Screening is recommended for people younger than 50 if they have a family history of colon cancer.
CMH’s team of specialists make preventing colon cancer easier than you think:
- Full anesthesia services to provide comfort and a stress free experience
- Convenient, short-duration prep that doesn’t begin until 4:00 p.m. the day before
- All prep materials readily available at your local drug store – no need for a prescription
- No follow up appointment necessary for most patients, just one visit to the specialist and you’re done.
If you’re 50 or older and you haven’t had a colonoscopy, then it’s time. Early detection of colon cancer can save your life. Don’t give cancer the upper hand. Call 518-828-9988 today to learn more.
