Colon Cancer Screening

Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in Massachusetts, but it can be prevented.

Screening tests can help your doctor find and remove polyps before they turn into cancer. Polyps are growths that can turn into cancer if they are not removed. When colon cancer is caught early, it can be cured 90% of the time. Early on, colon cancer has no symptoms, so you could have colon cancer and not know it. The only way to know for sure is to get screened.
