Colon Cancer Screening
Now is a great time to get screened!
The risk for colon cancer generally starts to rise after age 50. Almost everyone over age 50 should have regular screening for colon cancer. Screening is one of the best ways to lower your risk of developing this common and deadly form of cancer.
There are several different tests that can be used to screen for colon cancer. Each test has its own advantages and disadvantages. There is no "right" test for colon cancer. Keep in mind that any type of screening is better than no screening at all.
