Several types of screening exist for colon cancer and rectal cancer


Everyone should get screened. The only questions are when, using what method, and how often. The answers lie in several factors, including your age, and family history. Here you'll find some quick and easy tools to help you decide when and how your next (or first) screening will take place.

Prevention is smart, easy, and often fun

Most are rewarding in and of themselves, like eating right and exercising and learning about your family history.
