If you are 45 or older, it’s time to get screened for colon cancer.
Because of an increase in colon cancer in younger adults, screening is key to survival. Colon cancer is preventable -- so don’t wait for symptoms.
March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, but the time to get a colonoscopy is now -- especially if you are at risk or age 45 or older.
Colonoscopy is the gold standard for colon cancer screening since it detects and prevents the disease. This procedure is free for patients 45 and older since most insurance plans cover colonoscopies. Contact your health insurance provider to confirm coverage.
If you are not a part of the screening demographic yet, help promote the message to stop colon cancer now!
