It's time to get personal with your doctor.
Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer in both men and women and is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States after lung cancer. Colon cancer is highly treatable when found early and preventable with regular screenings.
Your doctor may suggest one or more tests for colorectal cancer screening. Ask your doctor when to begin screening and what tests are right for you. Discuss the benefits and risks of each test and how often to schedule appointments.
