At what age should I get a colonoscopy?

When should I get a colonoscopy?

Healthcare Providers (2)

You should get a colonoscopy at age 50 if you have no risk factors or at age 45 if you are African American.

Children have colonoscopies, so age is not the only thing to consider. Talk to your doctor about your risk factors and his/her recommendation about having a colon.
