Cancer of the colon or rectum takes time to develop, often taking years before it rears its ugly head. It's the 3rd most common cancer in both men and women in the United States, and the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Some studies state that lifestyle changes alone could prevent up to 45% of cases of colon cancer! Take this screening to:

Colorectal cancer screening truly saves lives. Screening can find precancerous polyp (abnormal growths in the colon or rectum) so that they can be easily removed before turning into cancer. Screening also helps find colorectal cancer at an early stage, when treatment often leads to a cure. The great news is that about nine out of every 10 people whose colorectal cancer is found early and treated are still alive five years later.
