Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. for both men and women combined, but when diagnosed early, 90 percent of colorectal cancers are completely curable. The best way to prevent colorectal cancer is through routine screening, starting at age 50 for men and women of average risk. Because colon cancer develops so slowly, regular screening can save your life. There are several screening methods, including colonoscopy.
At Livingston HealthCare our providers offer a personalized and patient centered care experience by walking you through every step of this procedure. Be your own advocate and schedule your colonoscopy today.
