The best way to beat colon cancer
When do you need to get screened, and how often?
One of the deadliest cancers can be prevented or detected at a curable stage if you follow recommended screening guidelines.
Colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). The good news is that the death rate has steadily dropped over the past several decades among older adults. (However, among people under 55, death rates from colon cancer have grown slowly, but steadily, since 2008.)
