Colon cancer is one of the most detectable and treatable forms of cancer, and regular colon cancer screening tests can be very effective in reducing your risk. Getting screened can mean more weddings, graduations, parties, vacations and anywhere else the best memories are created.

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States among men and women combined. One in 20 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer, and one in three people are not up-to-date with their colon cancer screening.
