Colon Cancer Screening Overview
Someone is diagnosed with colorectal cancer every four minutes in this country. The key to survival is early detection because colon cancer is curable in its early stages.
Colorectal cancer – cancer of the colon or rectum – is the second leading cancer killer in the United States. An estimated 150,000 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer this year and 50,000 people will die from the disease.
All women and men aged 50 and older are at an increased risk. In fact, 93 percent of cases occur in people aged 50 and older.
The good news is that colorectal cancer is preventable and, if detected early through screening, curable.
