Colon Cancer


Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, and is the second leading cancer killer in the United States for men and women combined. But this sad statistic does not have to be. In fact, if everyone aged 50 and older were regularly screened, experts say up to 60 percent of these deaths could be prevented.
