A study in the Annals of Internal Medicine showed people who underwent colonoscopy in the past 10 years were 71% less likely to develop advanced colon cancer than those who did not receive screening. Researchers found those who had sigmoidoscopy had a 50% reduced risk of colon cancer, but they noted sigmoidoscopy was associated with prevention of advanced tumors on only one side of the colon.
