Colonoscopy Age Changes

Schedule Your Colonoscopy Today!

Colorectal cancer incidence has been increasing for those less than 50 years of age, which is a huge problem since screening has traditionally began at age 50.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has now joined the American Cancer Society in recommending screening colonoscopy to start at age 45. This will now require all insurers to cover screening colonoscopy starting at age 45 instead of at age 50.
