90% OF COLORECTAL CANCER DEATHS CAN BE PREVENTED
There’s so much you don’t want to miss. The American Cancer Society now recommends that screening for people of average risk should begin at age 45. Having a screening colonoscopy at age 45 allows doctors to catch and remove pre-cancerous polyps early. However, it’s important for patients to understand that a screening colonoscopy at age 45 may not be covered at 100 percent, though it may well be covered at a lesser level.
