Colon Cancer Screening Update

A Recent Study From Tulane University Suggested That Patients Should Have A Colonoscopy Before 50. A Look At The Data Since 2005 Until Most Recently Found The Rate Of Colon Cancer Diagnosed Increased By 40% At 49-50. Initiating Screening Earlier, At Age 45, Is A “Qualified” Recommendation From The American Cancer Society (Acs); This Accompanies Its Strong Recommendation To Screen At Age 50 Or Older . Unfortunately Not All Insurance Covers This “Gold Standard” Procedure Prior To 50. Please Consult With Your Primary Care Physician As To Best Recommendation For You As An Individual, Which Is A Part Of Personalized Medicine Care In My Practice.
