Colorectal Cancer Is The Second Leading Cancer Killer In the U.S.

Get Screened Before Cancer Develops

If you are 50 or over, high risk or symptomatic, don’t put it off. Getting screened is the number one way you can help reduce your risk of colorectal cancer which is cancer of the colon or rectum.

A colonoscopy helps find precancerous polyps (grapelike growths) in the lining of the colon or rectum so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. A colonoscopy also can find colorectal cancer early, when it can be more easily and successfully treated.

Take our Colorectal Assessment Quiz to learn more.
