Each year, tens of thousands of people die from colon cancer. That's a sad truth, and it's even more saddening because most of those men and women could still be alive if they had gotten their recommended cancer screenings. In fact, it's estimated that 60 to 90 percent of colon cancer deaths could be prevented if everyone over 50 got a colonoscopy.
Simply put, a colonoscopy is the best way to check for colon cancer. It's the only screening exam that not only checks for cancer but also treats it by removing cancerous polyps. Not only that, you can expect the procedure and the recovery to both be pain free!
In many cases, there aren't any noticeable symptoms with colon cancer. That's why it's recommended that everyone over 50 should get a colonoscopy. Based on the results, your doctor can tell you when to get checked again in the future.
