If you have pain or discomfort when you eat, drink or have bowel movements, your primary-care provider can help determine if you need to see one of our specialists. You may also be referred to us for routine screenings such as a colonoscopy, depending on your age or family medical history.
When should you consider a colonoscopy?
Colon screening is an important part of preventive health care. Primary risk factors for the development of colon cancer are age greater than 50 years, a family history of colon cancer, or a personal history of adenomatous polyps. Even if you don’t have a family history of colon cancer or a personal history of colon polyps, you should still be screened after age 50, and then at regular intervals in the future. Additionally, if you have any symptoms involving blood in the stool, diarrhea or constipation, you should undergo a diagnostic colonoscopy.
