The Importance of Colon Cancer Screening
Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting Americans today, which is why it is highly recommended for people to undergo colon cancer screening after the age of 50, and those at a higher risk should have it done earlier. It can develop and grow for years before any symptoms show. By the time a person experiences symptoms, it is typically too late to cure the disease. Colorectal cancer screening can find polyps, adenomas and other abnormal growths in the large intestine and rectum that could become cancerous. There are several options for testing, although one of the most common tests is a colonoscopy.
