The Power is with You!

If you are 50 years or older you need to get tested for colon cancer, earlier if you have symptoms such as rectal bleeding, change in bowel habits, or have a family history of colon cancer. You have the power to PREVENT colon cancer—not just find it early. Stop colon cancer before it starts!

What to Do

Talk to your doctor. Learn about screening options that include:

  • Colonoscopy: Highly recommended as the BEST method to screen for colorectal cancer and the first choice to prevent colon cancer. The procedure is normally done every 10 years, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Medicare and most insurance plans cover this screening exam.

  • Hemosure: A yearly testing you do at home. It involves collecting two separate stool samples you bring to the clinic. Medicare and most insurance plans pay for this lab test.
