Get a Colonoscopy

One-third of U.S. adults skip their colonoscopy and one reason is the prep. As the second-leading cause of cancer deaths, colorectal cancer is one of the most preventable and treatable if detected early.

Know the Signs

The most common symptoms of colon cancer include bleeding from the bowel or a change in bowel habits such as diarrhea or constipation. Others include:

  • Pain or tenderness in lower abdomen
  • Constipation
  • Narrow stools or blood in stool
  • Bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Unexplained weight loss
