Colonoscopy is the preferred colorectal cancer screening test because it
finds and removes polyps, and thereby prevents future colon cancers. Recent
data show that both the number of new cases of colon cancer (incidence) and
deaths from the disease are decreased when colonoscopy is performed. For
normal risk individuals, the American College of Gastroenterology recommends
colonoscopy beginning at age 50, and age 45 for African-Americans.
