Colon Cancer Risk Test
Colon cancer is the No. 1 non-tobacco-related cancer killer in the United States. Yet, only one-third of Americans older than 50 has been screened for colon cancer. Hispanics are screened the least. African Americans experience the highest death rate associated with colon cancer. An equal opportunity disease affecting women and men older than 50, colon cancer is a treatable and preventable cancer. This short assessment will help determine your level of risk for developing colon cancer. View it as the first step in understanding your situation and a basis for a deeper conversation with your health care provider.
