4. Preventive coloskopy
Early detection can save your life!
In case of unclear abdominal disorders a coloscopy is a necessary examination.
During the examination the whole large intestine can be looked at and biopsies can be taken. This allows a quick diagnosis and therapy to feel well again soon.
Colon cancer is the most frequent type of cancer and coud be prevented by a colonoscopy every 5 to 7 years, depending on your personal risk. I recommend the first examination at the age of 40.
