Colon cancer is preventable
It strikes more than 140,000 Americans and kills about 50,000 every year. But early detection can make all the difference. A healthy diet and active lifestyle can also reduce your risk.
Screening can happen at any age
If you're over 50, it's definitely time. But if you have a family history of colon cancer you might need to get tested earlier.
