Colorectal Cancer Awareness

Schedule Your Colonoscopy

Colon Cancer Screening Saves Lives

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in the
United States. Men and women of “average risk,” who do not have any family history of cancer, should get periodic screening tests, such as a colonoscopy, beginning at age 45. Ask your doctor about the best screening test and schedule for you.

Time for a Colonoscopy?

At Memorial Hermann, you can schedule a screening colonoscopy directly if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are 50 years of age or older
  • You are African American and 45 years of age or older
  • You are 40 years old or 10 years younger than the age at which a first-degree relative was diagnosed with colon cancer

Due to recent changes in screening recommendations, please consult your insurance provider to confirm coverage if you are under the age of 50.
