Aetna Approves Colon Cancer Screening at 45

Posted April 16th, 2019

Colon cancer in young people has been on the rise recently.  While still overall low in incidence, the rates of colon cancer has been on the rise in people under the age of 50.  Because of this alarming trend the American Cancer Society issued new guidance for colon cancer screening in June, 2018 advising starting colon cancer screening for ALL patients starting at age 45. This position was supported by the president of the American Gastroenterological Association, though the main GI societies have not updated their guidelines pending further study. 

Most insurance companies, however, have not recognized the newer guidelines until now.  Aetna recently updated its policy to recommend colon cancer screening for all patients starting at age 45.  Hopefully all insurers will follow suit and recognize the importance of colon cancer screening starting at an earlier age, possibly halting this disturbing trend of increasing colon cancer rates in young people.

Colonoscopy Saves Lives

Colorectal Screening Test

Colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the Unites States, with 136,000 new cases diagnosed each year. The odds of developing colon cancer in your lifetime is 1 in 20. Having a colonoscopy with removal of pre-cancerous polyps reduces that cancer risk by 90%!  Colonoscopy should be considered a colon cancer prevention test, not just to detect cancer at an early stage. For people at average risk of cancer (without family history of colon cancer or polyps) screening colonoscopy should start at age 50 (45 for African Americans). Talk with your physician about colon cancer screening, and make sure you are not one of the almost 23 million people in America who have not had colon cancer screening.
