Cancer Screenings

Cancer ScreeningsColon cancer is one of the most common of all cancers. There is a 90% survival rate if it is discovered early. Most cancers begin with precancerous polyps which can be removed by colonoscopy, therefore preventing colon cancer.

Everyone over the age of 50 should have periodic examinations and cancer screenings. Individuals with a family history of colon cancer or polyps should have cancer screenings beginning at age 40. You should also be examined if you have any rectal bleeding.

As part of your cancer screening your Bux-Mont physician will perform either a flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy to view your colon. Ask your doctor about appropriate screening and prevention of colon cancer.
