Cancer screenings are an easy, effective way to detect cancer early, when they are most treatable.This is especially true of colorectal cancer because it is a slow-progressing cancer. Colonoscopy screenings are the best way to protect yourself from colorectal cancer and allow your gastroenterologist to remove any polyps that may be present before they become cancerous. Although it can be a lifesaving test, many people delay their colonoscopy because they are anxious or unsure about the procedure or the pre-screening prep. To make you feel as comfortable and prepared as possible, our board-ceritified Gastroenterologists share tips to help you "prepare for the prep."
