Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-death in men and women in the United States. It’s easily treatable, even preventable, if caught early. If you or a loved one are wondering if you’re at a higher risk of colon cancer and what screening options are available, please join us to learn how colon cancer screening can help you.

Watch what our physician experts have to say, then ask questions and hear their answers in real time! Topics include:

  • Risks of getting colon cancer
  • New colorectal cancer screening guidelines
  • Options for screening, including non-invasive testing
  • Treatment of colon cancer
