Our screening programs for colorectal cancer aim to find growths called polyps before they become cancer; to find cancer at its earliest stages, when it is most curable; and to identify people who are at increased risk for the disease and need to begin screening at an earlier age. Colorectal cancer screening at NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center may include a colonoscopy or another recommended test or procedure.
Colon Cancer Screening and Prevention Program
At NYU Langone’s Colon Cancer Screening and Prevention Program, we offer the latest colonoscopy technologies and other screening tests and procedures. Our highly trained experts help detect cancer early when it is most curable—and remove precancerous polyps or abnormal growths before they develop into cancer.
