Screening Colonoscopy

Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the U.S. but is also one of the most potentially curable cancers if diagnosed at an early stage. A colonoscopy is a test routinely done for the screening of colorectal cancer. This type of screening has led to a decline in the number of deaths from colon cancer. Colonoscopies can be performed in a hospital or a surgical center. At Howard County General Hospital, we perform screening colonoscopies in the Berman Pavilion located at 5759 Cedar Lane (adjacent to the main hospital building). Your physician will provide information on preparing for this test.
