Screenings Best Way to Deter Colon Cancer

Cancer research continues to make strides but it is still not completely clear what causes colon cancer. We do know most colon cancer begins as a growth called a polyp. And while not all polyps become cancerous, the only way to find out is by getting screened.

The American Cancer Society recommends that men and women at average risk start colorectal cancer screening at age 50. Some people may be at higher risk based on their family health history and need to start testing earlier. Recommended screening options such as Fecal Occult Blood Test, Stool DNA test kit shipped directly to your own home or colonoscopy are available.
