Did you know that colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death? The good news is that regular screening can prevent colon cancer from starting. Screening detects growths in your colon (called polyps) so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Colon cancer can occur at any age, but your risk significantly increases beginning at age 50. There are other factors that also increase your risk, so be sure and talk to your physician about your potential risk factors.
