Colonoscopies 101: Why they’re important, why it might be time to get one and why they’re easier than you might think

Remember the good old days? Did you have a favorite disco outfit? Did you ever get dropped off to meet your friends at the roller rink? Or spend hours by the radio in high school during the 80s, waiting to record your favorite songs for a new mixtape? If you did, then it’s probably time to think about scheduling a routine colonoscopy screening. According to the American Cancer Society, those at average risk for colon cancer should start getting screened at age 45. Those at higher than average risk may need to begin screening prior to age 45, and more frequently and/or with specific tests.
