Get Tested for Colorectal Cancer

Men and women age 50 and older should be tested regularly for colorectal cancer. All it takes is a visit to the doctor to have a special exam (called a “screening”).
Getting tested will give you the freedom from worry about colorectal cancer. If you act early, you have a good chance of finding colorectal cancer while it can be treated easily.
If you are over 50, it’s time to schedule a colorectal cancer test. Don’t wait.
