Dr. Gordon and Li encourage that at age 50, all men and women should be screened for colorectal cancer EVEN IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING NO PROBLEMS OR SYMPTOMS.
Common Myths explained:
Colonoscopy is almost always done on an outpatient basis. A mild sedative is usually given before the procedure and then a flexible, slender tube is inserted into the rectum to look inside the colon.
Gastroenterologists Gordon and Li emphasize that the test is safe and the procedure itself typically takes less than 30 minutes. Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in women in the US.
