Colon cancer is the third most common cancer among both men and women in the United States. However, many colorectal cancers can be prevented through early and regular screening. A colonoscopy is the best screening test available for colorectal cancer.
Traditionally, men and women are screened between the ages of 45 and 75, but people at higher risk such as African Americans may need to be screened earlier. Please talk with your health care provider about the best screening guidelines for you. A doctor’s colonoscopy prescription is needed before scheduling a screening.
Both DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital and DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital offer colonoscopy services.
