Colon Cancer Screening
Colonoscopy is one of the best ways to screen for colon cancer. People who have a normal colonoscopy have a very low risk of developing colon cancer in the following decade.
Most experts believe that after a normal colonoscopy, you can wait ten years before your next colon cancer screening test. At that point, you can choose between several different tests, including
computed tomography, also called "virtual" colonoscopy
stool cards (fecal occult blood tests)
