University of Iowa Health Care cancer tip: Get screened for colon cancer
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States. Colon cancer responds best to treatment if it is found and treated early. Everyone should be screened starting at age 50. High-risk individuals, including African-Americans and people with a family history of the disease, may need to be screened before age 50.
Talk with your doctor about when to be screened and which screening method is best for you. The two most commonly used screening methods are fecal occult blood test and colonoscopy. Learn more about colorectal screening at http://www.uihealthcare.com/topics/medicaldepartments/cancercenter/cancertips/2009/mar-colon.html.
