Colorectal Cancer Awareness

Schedule Your Colonoscopy

Colon Cancer Screening Saves Lives

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in the
United States. Six of every 10 colon cancer deaths could be prevented if all adults ages 50 and older were screened for the disease.
Men and women of “average risk,” who do not have any family history of cancer, should get periodic screening tests, such as a
colonoscopy, beginning at age 50. Ask your doctor about the best screening test and schedule for you.
