Here are a few colon cancer prevention tips: 

Screen regularly: Screening works by finding cancer early when it’s highly treatable, and also by removing growths (polyps) in the colon before they become cancerous.

Stop waiting for symptoms: There are often no signs or symptoms of colon cancer until it has reached a later stage. If you wait to get tested after symptoms develop, you might miss the chance to prevent the disease from spreading.

Know the options: Did you know that there’s more than one way to screen for colon cancer? Discuss the different options with your doctor, learn about how methods have improved, and find out which test is best for you.

Earn the right to nag: You did your part and you got screened. Now it’s your turn to encourage others to do the same.

As you know, March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. One way you can support the cause is through the Undy 5000 race on March 29. If you haven’t yet registered, there’s still time! You can register or support the cause by visiting the Undy 5000 St. Louis website.
