    Getting a Colonoscopy Can Help Prevent Colorectal Cancer

    A colonoscopy is effective in detecting and preventing colorectal cancer, which is the number one cause of death from cancer. More men are diagnosed with colorectal cancer than women, although everyone is at risk for developing this disease.

    Screening is vital and can help you prevent or cure colorectal cancer early. Colonoscopy is detailed; it can locate both existing cancers and pre-cancerous polyps. It enables the physician to examine the whole colon and remove any small lesions during the same procedure.

    Its potential to detect colon cancer early and prevent any new cases can help save lives. Colonoscopy is a one-stop test that requires no follow-up screening. As both a screening test and preventive intervention, it helps to reduce the incidence of colon cancer.

    Although it uses a scope and requires thorough pretest bowel cleansing, colonoscopy can only be done once in 10 years, except for those at high risk.

    Screening is vital for people at high risk for colorectal cancer and those at age 50. Colonoscopy is a protective procedure that benefits everyone.

    When colorectal cancer is detected early before it spreads beyond the rectum or colon, it is highly curable. A colonoscopy can prevent cancer from developing by helping to identify and remove polyps early. The earlier the disease is detected, the better the chances that a patient will fully recover from it. By the time symptoms start to show, colorectal cancer will probably have spread to surrounding organs.

    Unavoidable risk factors for colon cancer include age, having ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, family history of the disease or Lynch syndrome or familial polyposis. People with such risk factors should get screened every year or after every two years.

    Avoiding risk factors that you can control is as important as getting screened. Such risk factors include being physically inactive, alcohol consumption, being overweight, smoking, and eating red or processed meat.

    Screening can help doctors discover and treat some types of cancer early. Usually, cancer treatment is more effective when the disease is detected in its early stages and there could be a better chance of curing the cancer. Some...
