​​​​​​Colorectal Cancer Screening: The Lifesaver

Colorectal cancer​ can be referred to separately as colon cancer or rectal cancer, depending on where it starts. When detected early, colorectal cancers can be cured.

We suggest getting a colonoscopy, the gold standard in colon screenings, starting at age 45 or earlier if there is a family history or other risk factors. These screenings can find cancer at early stages when it's easiest to treat. Colonoscopies can even prevent cancer by finding and removing cancerous polyps.

Your primary care provider can help you schedule a colonoscopy based on your health needs. If you do not have a primary care provider, we can help.​
