Schedule Your Colonoscopy Today!

You have the power to prevent colon cancer.

Here's how:

If you're 50 or older, or if you have a family history of colon cancer, frequent polyps or inflammatory bowel disease, call your doctor and schedule a colonoscopy.
During this screening, your doctor can detect and remove precancerous growths or polyps.

Early detection and removal of colon cancers can prevent up to 80% of colon cancer deaths.
Colon cancer is the nation's No. 2 cancer killer - but early detection can change that.

Colonoscopy is the most reliable test for detection and removal of growths that lead to colon cancer.
