Why Screen for Colorectal Cancer?

The following video by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) demonstrates why getting screened for colon cancer starting at age 50 is so important and provides information on the initial steps you can take to get the conversation started with your GI doctor. A screening colonoscopy is not only for someone who feels ill – see the positive impact a screening can have by watching the video here. We hope this video encourages patients of screening age to take the steps to get tested.
