Direct Access Screening Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is the most important test to detect colon cancer at an early stage or to prevent it entirely, because colon cancer is 90% treatable when found early. Beginning at age 50, patients should have a screening colonoscopy. In response to a rise in colon cancer rates among younger people, the American Cancer Society now recommends that adults at average risk start screening for the disease beginning at age 45 rather than 50.  African-Americans have a greater risk and should begin screening starting at age 45.
