A simple screening for colon cancer could save your life.
Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., and one in every 24 Americans will be diagnosed.* But here’s the good news: death rates due to colon cancer have been dropping steadily for the past 20 years, thanks to early detection and improved treatment.
The American Cancer Society recommends that men and women over the age of 45 be regularly screened for colon cancer. The process is safe and effective, with nothing to fear and no need for embarrassment. So why take the chance? A simple screening could add years to your life.
