In brief: Colonoscopy, imaging

Colon is the commonest site of intestinal cancers and screening can take any and all of the following forms: fecal occult blood testing, sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, and barium enema.
It is recommended that a screening colonoscopy be done at age 50, sooner if there is family history of early cancer.
