Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S, but it is treatable if diagnosed early. A colonoscopy is the best way to screen for colon cancer. Colonoscopy detects and removes up to 98% of colorectal tumors.

Everyone needs to have a colonoscopy by the age of 50, age 45 for African Americans. If you have a family history of colon cancer, you need to get screened 10 years before the age your family member was diagnosed.

Don't put off colon cancer screening any longer; schedule a colonoscopy today!
