Detecting Colon Cancer
Rush Copley gastroenterologists offer a variety of screening tools to detect colorectal cancer from a fecal occult blood test (which requires only a stool sample) to a colonoscopy.
A colonoscopy can help prevent colon cancer by detecting potentially cancerous polyps, many of which can be removed on the spot. Because colorectal cancer doesn't always have symptoms in its early stages, experts recommend regular screenings. While screening recommendations vary, the American Cancer Society recently changed its recommendations for getting your first colonoscopy from 50 to 45. So, it is important to talk to your doctor about the best screening options for you around age 45.
