Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States among men and women, and is expected to cause about 50,310 deaths during 2014. However, routine testing starting at age 50 can actually prevent many cases of colon cancer, or find it at an early stage. But because many people are not getting tested, only about 4 out of 10 are diagnosed at this early stage when treatment is most likely to be successful.

This infographic focuses on the benefits of getting tested, identifying the people at greatest risk for developing colon cancer, and the steps you can take to detect colon cancer early or even prevent it altogether.
