CANCER

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. for men and women combined. Although it can occur at almost any age, the incidence of colon cancer increases with age and average risk people over 50 should be considered for screening. It is believed that 90% of colon cancers begin as benign polyps in the colon. Therefore detection of polyps and their removal with screening colonoscopy is an effective way to prevent colon cancer.
