Colon Cancer Screening and Prevention

Loving mature couple


UT Health San Antonio's Gastroenterology specializes in expert diagnosis and treatments for a wide range of conditions.

Colon cancer screenings are completed by our specialists with the goal of preventing deaths from colon cancer. These screenings are used to single out polyps that can typically be removed during a colonoscopy. Screening colonoscopies are recommended for all patients over the age of 50. Individuals with a family history of colorectal cancer may need to get a colonoscopy prior to the age of 50.
