Colorectal cancer, also known as colon cancer, is the second leading cause of cancer in the United States; however, if detected early, this cancer can be cured. If you are 50 years of age or older, have a family history of colon cancer or have a history of ulcerative colitis or Crohn's Disease, it is recommended that you are screened for Colorectal Cancer.
