One area of special focus is on the prevention of colon cancer through early screening. Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths. Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers in both men and women. Regular screening, starting at age 50, is important since most early colorectal cancers do not produce symptoms. The good news is that colon cancer is one of the most treatable cancers. Early detection is key. Most colorectal cancers develop from noncancerous polyps and removing these polyps during a colonoscopy can reduce your risk of getting colorectal cancer.
