Colorectal cancer screening tests

Colon cancer is common. It's also preventable and treatable if caught early. If you're 50+, take advantage of these screenings.

Colorectal cancer almost always starts with a small growth in the colon or rectum called a polyp. Left undetected, polyps can be cancerous and grow into tumors that can spread. However, found early, doctors can remove polyps and stop colorectal cancer before it starts.
