A colonoscopy is
the best way to prevent colon cancer.

Pre-cancerous polyps can be removed during the screening, BEFORE they develop into cancer. While there are other colon cancer screening methods, a colonoscopy allows your doctor to examine the entire colon for signs of cancer and remove polyps in one procedure.
