GET STARTED ON YOUR COLONOSCOPY
Colonoscopy is a procedure where a physician uses a flexible, thin tube with a camera and light source to examine the inside of the rectum and colon. Colonoscopy can detect inflamed tissues, ulcers, and abnormal growths such as polyps and tumors. The procedure is used to look for early signs of colorectal cancer and can help doctors diagnose unexplained changes in bowel habits, abdominal pain, bleeding from the anus or rectum, and weight loss. Colonoscopy is now commonly used for colon cancer screening, as it can both detect and help prevent colon cancer.
COLON CANCER SCREENING
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States, after breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.. The risk of the average person between the ages of 50 to 80 developing colon cancer is about six percent or almost 1 in 20. Family history of colorectal cancer, and certain other cancers (ovarian, uterine, breast and other GI cancers), inflamatory bowel disease (Ulcerative and Crohn’s Colitis), Obesity, and smoking, significantly increase this risk. Colorectal cancer arises when cancer cells form in the lining of the colon or rectum.
