Get Screened

DO YOU KNOW YOUR RISK OF COLON CANCER?

  • Are you over the age of 45?
  • Has anyone in your immediate family been diagnosed with polyps or colon cancer?
  • Are you experiencing unusual changes in bowel movements, rectal spotting, or bleeding?
  • Do have frequent abdominal (belly) pain or discomfort?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you may be at risk for colorectal cancer. At age 45, everyone should begin routine colon cancer screenings*. If you have a family history of colon polyps or colorectal cancer, you should schedule your screening at a younger age due to increased risk of the disease.

Colorectal cancer can be prevented. When caught early, colorectal cancer can be treated and cured.
