Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S.
Sixty percent of deaths from colorectal cancer can be prevented if everyone aged 50 or older had regular screening tests. Colonoscopies are the most accurate tests to detect and remove polyps (abnormal growths in the colon or rectum) in a single procedure. Colorectal cancer or colorectal polyps don't usually have symptoms, that is why it is so important to get screened.
