Colon Cancer Screening at Livingston Healthcare
What You Should Know About Colon Cancer
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States
for both men and women. When diagnosed early, however, 90% of colorectal
cancers are completely curable. The best way to prevent colorectal cancer
is through routine screening, starting at age 50 for men and women of
average risk and younger for those with certain risk factors. Because
colon cancer develops so slowly, regular screening can save your life.
There are several screening methods available, including colonoscopy.
