Proper Screening is Most Often the Best Medicine
Although colorectal cancer is common, it is often silent – most patients report no symptoms prior to its diagnosis. When symptoms do appear – rectal bleeding, weight loss, change in bowel habits, abdominal pain – it’s usually a sign that the cancer is in a more advanced stage and may have already spread to other organs.
That’s why regular screening is so important. The goal of early screening such as colonoscopy is to detect and remove any polyps in your colon before they turn into cancers. Approximately 90% of patients treated for early colon cancer are cured.
If someone you love is over 50, one of the best things you can do for them is to persuade them to have a colonoscopy. It might just save their life.
