BENEFITS OF SCREENING

A Little Testing
Makes A Big Difference

When caught in early stages, colon cancer is more treatable.4 Get screened today to increase your chances of finding, treating, and potentially surviving colon cancer. 



What Colon Cancer Is and Why Screening Is Important

According to the American Cancer Society, colon cancer is an abnormal growth of cells in the colon or rectum that can invade nearby tissues or spread to other organs. Normally, colon cancer starts as a polyp (small growth) that gets larger over time. While not all polyps are cancerous, some do turn into cancer, which is why getting screened is so important.3


The American Cancer Society recommends you begin screening for colon cancer at age 45.1

Many people with early-stage colon cancer have no symptoms or family history and are diagnosed through screening.5

Every race, gender and ethnicity are at risk for colon cancer. Luckily, it’s treatable in about 90% of people2 when caught early.
