Colonoscopies and colorectal cancer.

Regular colonoscopies can help you stay on top of your colorectal health and catch any potential health concerns as early as possible.

Colorectal cancer almost always develops as abnormal growths in your colon or rectum. During a colonoscopy, your physician will look for these growths, called polyps, and remove them before they turn into cancer.

We recommend annual colonoscopies for men and women ages 50 to 75, but those at higher risk of colorectal cancer based on family history may need to be screened earlier. Your annual colonoscopy can detect cancer in its earliest stages when treatment is the most effective. 

About 90 percent of colorectal cancer cases occur in people who are 50 or older.
