Screening = Colonoscopy = Lives Saved

 

Are you 50 to 75 years of age? Have you had a personal or family history of colorectal cancer? If you can answer yes to either of those questions, then you need to be screened for colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if the cancer had been found in the early stages. Learn more about colorectal cancer and the types of screening options, then schedule either a virtual or optical colonoscopy at UW Health.
