Colon Cancer Prevention

Colon cancer, also referred to as colorectal cancer, is the third most common cause of cancer overall in the US (after skin cancer), and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women (after lung cancer). But there is good news: colon cancer is highly preventable, and also highly treatable if diagnosed in its early stages.
