Who Should Get a Regular Colonoscopy?
Most medical professionals recommend colonoscopy for colon cancer screening. In this process, a tube is inserted to examine the large and small intestine. This procedure will help detect and remove any polyps. A person who has colorectal symptoms or is age 50 or above should go in for a colonoscopy because colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. There are many symptoms of colon cancer like abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, weight loss, blood in stools, and weakness.
