Colonoscopy – Starting at 50
Transcript

Studies have shown that if you start at the age of 50, you'll be able to catch a majority of precancerous polyps before they become cancerous. If you wait until a later age, you may miss a significant portion of patients that may have polyps that may have already grown to a cancerous state at that point. So the studies that had been done up until now have shown that if you start at the the age of 50 it's not that you're going to get 100% of the patients that have a risk of getting polyps or colon cancer, but you will get a significant amount of them that will then prevent them from getting cancer.
