Frequently Asked Questions

What our customers are saying

At what age should I have a colonoscopy?

Average risk individuals should start colon and rectal cancer screening at the age of 50. People with symptoms or other risk factors would start earlier.  You are considered higher risk if you have a family or personal history of colon and rectal cancer or precancerous polyps.  You are also at a higher risk if you have a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease.  If you think you may be at an increased risk of colon cancer, you should talk to your doctor about whether you should have a colonoscopy before the age of 50.

What is a polyp?

Polyps are growths in the colon and rectum. Polyps are usually small and typically do not give any symptoms. There are many different types of polyps. A few polyps, (adenomas) if left in the colon long enough, can turn into cancer. Removing polyps at colonoscopy can prevent most colon and rectal cancers.

What are some signs and symptoms of colon cancer?

Colon and rectal cancer most often is diagnosed by colonoscopy before any symptoms are present.  Often symptoms indicate more advanced disease.  Symptoms may include rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, or change in bowel habits (constipation or diarrhea).  These symptoms are not specific and may be representative of other disorders of the colon, rectum, and/or anus.  If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should be evaluated by your primary care doctor or gastroenterologist.

I was nervous about the health problems that I was experiencing. As I visited with Dr. Murday and Dr. Waldron they helped me understand what was happening and what needed to be done to correct it. After my procedure, their follow up care was excellent and my problems were corrected.

Thank you Dr. Murday for your excellent care. I was so nervous before coming in and you made me feel so comfortable. I have returned back to my regular lifestyle now.

Mary L. - West Jordan


Dr Waldron was very thorough and discovered that I was in the early stages of cancer. Because of this the cancer was removed and I have had no lingering effects. I am now cancer free.
