Colorectal Cancer Screening / Colonoscopy

Colon cancer remains one of the most common cancers in the U.S. It can be deadly when found at late stages, but if found early it often can be cured. Colonoscopy is an outpatient procedure that can be used to look for early cancer or colon polyps that may become cancer. Colon polyps can be removed during colonoscopy.
