It’s almost the end of the year and if you have met your deductible – or if you have FSA money – one of the best things you can do is invest in your health and schedule a colonoscopy.
If you are over the age of 45, this important, life-saving screening is the best way to screen for colon cancer.
Booking a colonoscopy is an action you can take that can save your life – and it’s fairly easy to do. A colonoscopy can not only look for colon cancer but it can also allow your doctor to look at the overall health of your colon – and check for and remove polyps.
While there no perfect time to have a colonoscopy, the end of the year might mean you’ve met your insurance deductible or you might have FSA money to spend. Afterall, those funds won’t roll over to 2023!
In addition, scheduling a colonoscopy means you can head confidently into 2023, knowing you’ve done something amazing for your health and family – you are taking care of your wellness!
Colonoscopies are a safe and relatively simple procedure done at a hospital, surgical center or doctor’s office. You will be sedated and comfortable during the procedure and your doctor will examine your colon through a scope with a camera placed in your rectum. It usually takes about a half hour and you will need someone to drive you.
Each year, more than 50,000 people die of colon cancer but if it is caught early, it is highly treatable.
Make this the year you stay on top of your health and wellbeing. Book your colonoscopy today!
