Colon cancer is the third leading cause of death in the United States but is highly preventable. Colorectal cancer can take years to develop, so when screenings, like colonoscopies, are performed regularly they can detect changes or polyps in the colon which can be removed before they have a chance to turn into cancer.
The surgeons and Colon and Rectal Specialists created this easy to read and easy to share infographic to help learn more about colon cancer, or find an easy way to talk to your friends or family about the importance of routine screenings.
