About Colon Cancer and Rectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer (term used for both colon cancer and rectal cancers) is the second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States among both men and women.

There are over one million colorectal cancer survivors in the U.S. Although it’s a common cancer, it’s also a preventable cancer. Proper colon screening can reduce or eliminate the risk of colon cancer occurrence. Know the signs and symptoms, and the risk factors.

Anyone age 50 or older, those experiencing symptoms of colon cancer or individuals at high risk need to be screened. Consult with a medical professional about options for colon cancer screening today.
