Your screening options
Most insurance plans cover 100% of the cost of screening with no co-pays or deductibles. Even without insurance, there are low cost, reliable options.
If you haven’t been screened, talk to your doctor about the screening option that is right for you. Then, make and keep your appointment to be screened.
It could save your life.

Having a colonoscopy saved my life or at a minimum has prolonged it. Two weeks after turning 50 I had a colonoscopy because it is recommended at this milestone age. I had no family history of colon cancer and had no symptoms. (I know the importance of cancer screenings because my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer after an annual mammogram). The screening revealed stage 4 colon cancer. I started chemo therapy right way, then had surgery to remove all the cancerous lesions and am cancer free today. If I had waited even a few months, my treatment options and outcome would have been much different. SCREENINGS SAVE LIVES! Unlucky for me, my cancer started growing before age 50 but if you are over 50 OR have a family history of colon cancer OR you are having any symptoms, GO GET SCREENED and encourage your loved ones to do it too!
