The evidence is staggering. Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. & 3rd most common cancer.

The good news is a colonoscopy at Scotland Endoscopy Center can help cut your chances of dying from colon cancer in half. Studies show that removing polyps (small growths) during a colonoscopy prevent colon cancer from developing in the first place. But early detection is key. That's why it's recommended that everyone get a screening starting at age 50. Those with a family history of colon cancer should be screened earlier and African Americans and Native Americans should be screened starting at age 45.

If you're 50 or older, don't wait-the consequences are much scarier. Click to read Steven's Story.

Scotland Endoscopy Center is located at 205 Lauchwood Drive, in the Scotland Corporate Center.
