Many people don’t go for a regular colonoscopy screening as they don’t think they are at risk, they don’t have any symptoms, or they are just worried about the discomfort.
As many as 90% of all colorectal cancer cases can be successfully cured when caught early.
Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer among men and women in the UAE but is it one of the most treatable.
Symptoms often don’t appear until the later stages, when the disease is much harder to treat. A colonoscopy can detect and remove polyps before they can develop into cancer, and catch the disease in its earliest stages when it is much easier to treat successfully.
As more than 41% of colorectal cancer cases occur in people under the age of 50, the Department of Health strongly encourages going for regular colorectal cancer screening for anybody over the age of 40.
If you are over 40, book your colonoscopy today. It might save your life.
