Colorectal Cancer & Colonoscopies

The benefits of colonoscopies may seem small compared to the big feeling of anxiety you may experience when you're due for one. However it's not so bad to get a colonoscopy. Getting one could even save your life. So if your doctor has prescribed the procedure especially if you have a family history of colon cancer don't put it off.

Colorectal Cancer & Colonoscopies

People at average risk for colon cancer

The American Cancer Society believes that preventing colorectal cancer (and not just finding it early) should be a major reason for getting tested.

Starting at age 45, men and women at average risk for developing colorectal cancer should use one of the screening tests below:

  • Colonoscopy - performed every 10 years
  • CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy) - performed every 5 years
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy - performed every 5 years
  • Double-contrast barium enema - performed every 5 years
  • Fecal immunochemical test (FIT) - performed every year
  • Guaiac-based fecal occult blood test (gFOBT) - performed every year
  • Stool DNA test - performed every 3 years

People at increased or high risk for colon cancer

If you are at an increased or high risk of colorectal cancer, you might need to start colorectal cancer screening before age 45 and/or be screened more often. The following conditions make your risk higher than average:

  • A personal history of colorectal cancer or adenomatous polyps
  • A personal history of inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease)
  • A strong family history of colorectal cancer or polyps
  • A known family history of a hereditary colorectal cancer syndrome
