Screening: It's easier than you might think

Currently only 30 percent of Americans take advantage of colon cancer screening. Yet if all colon cancer cases were detected at their earliest stages, five-year overall survival rates would jump from 65 percent to 90 percent.

What are the screening methods?

Ask your doctor about which screening methods are right for you ... they can save your life!
