Colon cancer screenings can detect precancerous polyps early enough to prevent cancer from developing.

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, so it’s a perfect time to be reminded that colon cancer is one of the most common and preventable cancers.

It’s important to know your risk factors — like age, being overweight, and smoking. Diet and lifestyle changes, such as eating foods low in saturated fats and high in fiber like fruits and vegetables, as well as becoming more active are great steps toward lowering your risk.
