If you are age 45 to 75, it might be time for a colon cancer screening. People at higher risk for colorectal cancer should talk with their doctor about whether starting screening earlier might be right for them.
Norton Healthcare offers:
Getting a colon cancer screening or colonoscopy is the best way to prevent colon cancer. When caught early, colon cancer is highly treatable. If a polyp is found during your colonoscopy, it can be removed right away.
Most insurance plans, including Medicare, cover all or most of the cost of a colon cancer screening. Check with your insurance provider before scheduling to understand any costs you may have.
Preparing for a colonoscopy has gotten easier in recent years. You may not need to take off the day before for your prep. That will depend on your doctor’s prescription. You will have to take off a day for the colonoscopy itself. Usually you can go back to your routine schedule the next day. If taking time off is difficult, Saturday appointments may be available.
