A family history of colon cancer, being over the age of 45, and being at increased risk for colon cancer all indicate that a colonoscopy is necessary. Colonoscopies are one of the best ways to prevent and detect colon cancer, while also safeguarding your GI health. Additionally, they can assist in pinpointing the reasons for bloody stool, stomach pain, and diarrhea. This quick 15-30 minute procedure provides valuable insight into many troublesome GI symptoms.
The most common forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Currently, these conditions affect around 1.6 million Americans, with many receiving a diagnosis before the age of 35. Every year, approximately 70,000 new cases of IBD are diagnosed in children and adults. IBD is a chronic disease that can’t be cured but is manageable with treatment.
