Colon Cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States. But despite this disease's deadly reputation, screening for colon cancer can be highly effective at detecting it early and preventing unnecessary deaths and other complications. 

This book is designed to help you understand how and when to schedule screening exams for colon cancer, what to expect from the process, and what the results might mean. It provides information on colon cancer symptoms and risk factors, as well as recommendations for the age at which you should schedule specific procedures.

Colon cancer is highly survivable if caught early - and extremely deadly if caught late. So it's vital you know how and when to talk to your doctor about screening, because by the time your body starts to display symptoms, it might already be too late.
