Considered the gold standard for colon cancer screening

Colonoscopies can detect precancerous polyps or early-stage cancer, which may not be present any symptoms. Detecting and removing polyps during the colonoscopy can prevent cancer or catch it in an early, treatable stage.

If you have average risk factors or no symptoms, the recommended age to start regular screening colonoscopies begins at age 45.


Motility – the movement of food through the body – from the throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine.

Know Your Risk Factors

According to the National Institutes of Health, you have risk factors if you:

  • are male
  • are African American
  • or someone in your family has had polyps or colorectal cancer
  • have a personal history of inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease
  • have Lynch syndrome or another genetic disorder that increases your risk of colorectal cancer
  • have other factors, such as being overweight and smoking tobacco

Reduce Your Risk

Be proactive about your GI health and reduce the risk of colon cancer. Be sure to:

  • eat a healthy diet to help maintain and take control of your weight
  • stay active and get regular exercise
  • avoid tobacco and alcohol
  • most importantly, regular screenings can detect early signs of colon cancer and should start at age 45
