Questioning your colon health is the first step to aid in prevention.

According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in the United States, yet it is one of the most preventable types of cancer. With regular screenings and lifestyle changes, this deadly disease is preventable and treatable when detected early.

 

Colon cancer screenings allow for polyps (abnormal growths in the colon that are potential causes for colon cancer) to be found and removed before cancer develops. Screenings also aid in detecting cancer at its earliest stages when it’s easiest to treat.

Talk to your primary care provider today about a colon screening. If you don’t have a primary care provider, Baptist Health can help!
