Colonoscopy Procedures

A Colonoscopy is the most accurate test for cancers of the colon and rectum. This procedure is proven to aid in early detection and saves lives. For most people, colonoscopies are recommended at age 50, and typically repeated every 5 years. Though, you should ask your physician what makes the most sense for you.
