Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women in this country. Screening by colonoscopy can prevent cancer or find it at an early stage. During screening, a doctor looks for polyps (abnormal tissue growth) or cancer. If precancerous polyps are found, they can be removed before they turn into the cancer.
