Everyone should have a colonoscopy every 10 years, beginning at age 50. Of cancers that affect both men and women, colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, but it doesn't have to be. Routine screenings can catch cancer at an early stage, when treatment can often lead to a cure.
To encourage more people to get their screenings, Buffalo Hospital has made the process more convenient and the experience a little more comfortable.
Preparation kits are available for purchase in the Buffalo Hospital Gift Shop, which is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.
