Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women in the United States.  Getting screened for colorectal cancer may not sound pleasant, but it can actually prevent cancer. There are several screening test options; some you can even do from home. Talk to your doctor to decide which is best for you.
