We’ve all heard the saying “Prevention is the best medicine!,” in the case of colon cancer this rings true. Colorectal cancer – commonly known as colon cancer – is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Colorectal cancer affects both men and women of all racial and ethnic groups, and is most often found in people aged 50 years or older.

While one of the leading causes of cancer deaths, it is also one of the most detectable and thus, preventable forms of cancer. Colorectal cancer screening saves lives. Screening can find precancerous polyps – abnormal growths in the colon or rectum – so that they can be removed before turning into cancer. One in three Quad Citians are at risk for polyps. Finding polyps and colorectal cancer early can often lead to a cure.
