CANCER TYPES

COLON CANCER

COLON CANCER

Colorectal cancer, also called colon or rectal cancer, is the third leading cause of death from cancer in the United States. It is the most common type of gastrointestinal cancer. It also is one of the most treatable when found in its early stages. Colorectal cancer occurs most often in people older than 50.

The American Cancer Society recommends a diet high in fruits and vegetables with limited high-fat foods to reduce your risk. Keeping a healthy weight through exercise and other activity is important, too.

After age 50, the most effective way to reduce your risk of colorectal cancer is to have regular screening tests.
