Colon Cancer Screening

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common, and most deadly, of cancers. For this reason, colon cancer screening is recommended for everyone over the age of 50. The good news is colon cancer is up to 80% preventable when detected early. Colorectal cancer generally develops from precancerous growths, or polyps. Screening exams can find polyps so they can be removed before they become cancerous. Colonoscopy saves lives.

It’s important to know that if you have a personal or family history of colorectal cancer, colon polyps, or inflammatory bowel disease, you may be at a higher risk for colorectal cancer.

Facts to Consider

  • Both men and women are at risk of this cancer of the colon and rectum
  • 93% of cases occur in people age 50 and older
  • Symptoms are nonexistent, especially at first
  • Screening exams can prevent cancer by removing pre-cancerous growths (polyps).
