Any kind of cancer can be scary, but colon cancer in particular is difficult to spot because so many of the symptoms can be attributed to other things. The American Cancer Society recommends that every healthy adult get a colon cancer exam after they're 45 years old and once every five to ten years after that, but you may have reason to get screened before then too.

At Gastro Health in Woodbridge, VA, we'll help you navigate the murky waters of colon cancer and digestive health, so schedule an appointment with us today.

When Should You Be Screened?

Although most people don't need a screening until they're 45 years old, you may want to get tested earlier. If you know you have a family history of colon cancer, schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgeable doctors. We can help you figure out when you should get tested or if it should be done that day.
