Screening at 50
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common, and most deadly, of cancers. For this reason, colon cancer screening is recommended for everyone over the age of 50. The good news is colon cancer is 90% preventable when detected early, so we’re glad you’re considering a screening. These exams save lives. Preventing this disease is our driving passion at Salem Gastro.
