About Colon Cancer and Rectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer (colon cancer and rectal cancer) 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. Anyone age 50 or older, those experiencing symptoms of colon cancer or individuals at high risk of colon or rectal cancer need to be screened.
