Colonoscopy Saves Lives

Colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the Unites States, with 136,000 new cases diagnosed each year. The odds of developing colon cancer in your lifetime is 1 in 20. Having a colonoscopy with removal of pre-cancerous polyps reduces that cancer risk by 90%!  Colonoscopy should be considered a colon cancer prevention test, not just to detect cancer at an early stage.

Talk with your physician about colon cancer screening, and make sure you are not one of the almost 23 million people in America who have not had colon cancer screening.
