Who needs a colonoscopy?
Men and women at average risk should begin colonoscopy screening at age 50 and repeat once every 10 years (at least) until age 75. The frequency depends on what your doctor finds during screening . People with either first-degree relatives who was diagnosed with colon cancer or adenomatous polyps before the age of 60, or two first degree relatives diagnosed at any age should be screened starting at age 40 or 10 years before the relative was diagnosed, whichever is earlier.
