One of the most common misconceptions that I hear is this: “… but doctor, I am healthy, eat organic foods, exercise, and have no family history of colon cancer. I also feel great, so I do not think that I need a colonoscopy,”
Well, it is excellent to do all of the above and live a healthy life, but unfortunately most colon cancers (80%) occur in individuals who have NO risk factors!
So, the best way to screen for and prevent colon cancer is a colonoscopy.
We, at AGI, strive to make the experience of colonoscopy as comfortable as humanly possible.
