A screening colon is done usally at age 50 as a baseline. You can use the V76.51 code on for first time colons or one done every 10 years with no other diagnosis. Unfortunetly if they are having symptoms it's not a screening. If they have a family history of colon cancer in a first degree relative they can sometimes be seen prior to age 50, but again this is all dependant on their insurance and what they allow.
