Take the “At-Risk” Test
Are you over age 50?
Do you have a personal history of colon cancer or colon polyps?
Do you have a family history – one or more parents, brothers
and/or sisters, or children – of colon cancer or adenomatous polyps?
Do you have a history of inflammatory bowel disease, such as
ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease?
Do you have symptoms of:
Blood in your stool (bright red, black, or very dark)?
A change in your bowel movements, especially in the shape of the
stool (e.g. narrow like a pencil)?
Cramping pain in the lower abdomen?
Frequent gas pains?
Discomfort in or the urge to move your bowels when there is no need?
If you answered yes to any, you may be “AT RISK” for developing colon cancer.
Colon cancer strikes just as hard in both women and men. With screening, you
can prevent it.
Research shows that removing pre-cancerous growths in the
the colon can lower the risk that you’ll be a casualty of colon cancer by as much as 90%.
