50 Is the New 40

You Have the Power to Prevent Colon Cancer!

If you are 50 and haven’t had a colonoscopy, it’s time! A colonoscopy is a screening test to find small growths called polyps and remove them before they become cancerous…or to detect cancer when it is in the early stages and can be successfully treated.

The American Cancer Society recommends that some people be screened using a different schedule because of their personal history or family history. Talk with your doctor about your history and what colorectal cancer screening schedule is best for you.

Risk Factors for Colorectal Cancer

  • Age - More than 9 out of 10 people diagnosed with colorectal cancer are older than 50
  • Personal history of colorectal polyps, colorectal cancer, or personal history of inflammatory bowel disease
  • Family history of colorectal cancer Inherited syndromes related to colorectal cancer
  • Racial and ethnic background - African Americans and Jews of Eastern European descent

Lifestyle-Related Risk Factors

  • Diets - High in red meats (beef, lamb, or liver) and processed meats (hot dogs and some luncheon meats)
  • Cooking meats at very high temperatures (frying, broiling, or grilling)
  • Physical inactivity
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Heavy alcohol use
  • Type 2 diabetes

The colonoscopy test takes a few hours from start to finish and despite what you may have heard, the preparation is simple. Colonoscopy is covered by major insurance plans. Talk to your primary care physician, or if you need a physician, or would like to schedule a colonoscopy, call us today.
