Colon Cancer Info

Colon cancer has long been considered a disease that affects mainly older men, but colon cancers also strike 71,000 women a year.
Although experts recommend regular colonoscopies starting at age 50, if you have inflammatory bowl disease or a family history of colon cancer, talk to your doctor about having the procedure earlier.
Any cancer caught early has a much better chance of being overcome, so get yourself checked.
