THE INFAMOUS COLONOSCOPY: IT’S NOT SCARY
How can we protect our digestive health?
There are several screening tools to monitor colon health. Depending on age, risk factors, family history and symptoms, your doctor will help you decide which test best meets your needs. The most comprehensive and well-known exam is the colonoscopy. Colonoscopies save lives by helping doctors find polyps or cancer before a patient ever displays symptoms. Yet, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, only 1 in 3 adults who should be screened for colon health are actually undergoing the procedure.
