But it is an important part of turning 50
"The prep wasn't pretty but the procedure was a piece of cake,
thanks to the all-pro team at Scottsdale Healthcare.
I had a benign polyp which was removed right then and there.
If colon cancer is detected early, you just saved your life.
Think of it like a prevent defense, so you can live more and fear less."

Are You 50 and Fearless?
If you’re over 50 and have been putting off your first colonoscopy, it’s time to face your fears. Colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer of men and women – but it doesn’t have to be. Colon cancer can actually be prevented through colonoscopy screening.
Colonoscopy screening is recommended at age 50 or earlier if you have a family history of the disease. At Scottsdale Healthcare, we recognize that fear is the number one reason people put off scheduling a colonoscopy. Our caring physicians, nurses and medical personnel are here to encourage and support you with this important screening - a screening that could save your life. But don’t just take our word for it, listen to our patients who have had their colonoscopy as well as those who have survived colon cancer.
With your colonoscopy, most likely the result will be complete peace of mind. If a benign polyp is found, we can remove it right then and there. If colon cancer is detected early…you just saved your life. And a colonoscopy is not an annual screening. If no polyps are found, you won’t have to schedule another colonoscopy for 10 more years.
Now is the time to take charge, so that you can live more, and fear less.
