Prevent Colorectal Cancer
Regular screening beginning at age 50 is the key to preventing colorectal cancer. If you’re 50 or over, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. If you’re younger than 50 and have a family history of colon cancer or think you may be at high risk for this disease, ask your doctor if you should be screened.
- Among cancers of both men and women, colorectal cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in the U.S.
- Every year, approximately 140,000 people in the U.S. get colorectal cancer and more than 50,000 people die from it.
- Your risk increases with age. More than 90% of colorectal cancers occur in people who are 50 years and older.
- Precancerous polyps and colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at first. However, symptoms may include blood in or on the stool, stomach pain that doesn’t go away, or loss of weight without an explanation. If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor right away.
- Only about two-thirds of adults in the U.S. are up-to-date with their colorectal cancer screening.
There are several screening options. Colonoscopy is the best test for finding and removing precancerous polyps.
So, don’t wait! Call to schedule your colorectal cancer screening by colonoscopy today.
