A colonoscopy can actually stop cancer. So what's stopping you?
Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. But a colonoscopy can actually prevent it. During the colonoscopy, your doctor can see and remove polyps, which may turn into cancer. And it's really not as bad as you think - you sleep right through it!
If you're 50 and older, and haven't been screened for colorectal cancer, it's time.
