Colon Cancer Awareness Month is approaching and Fort HealthCare encourages those age 50 and over to have a colonoscopy. Seven out of 10 people age 50 years or older have not had a colonoscopy, primarily due to fears. Information and education can help alleviate many of the unknowns associated with colonoscopies. There are a number of options available to patients, but often questions arise about the differences between virtual and traditional colonoscopies.
