Colon cancer prevention: 50 and Fearless
Colon cancer prevention: 50 and Fearless
Whether it's fear of the prep, the procedure or potential results, colonoscopy could be a lifesaver when detecting colon cancer, the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. That's why Scottsdale Healthcare launched its http://50andfearless.org/ health education campaign. Although a screening colonoscopy is recommended starting at age 50, if there is a family history of colorectal cancer or polyps, screenings should begin at age 40. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that up to 60% of colorectal cancer deaths could be prevented if all men and women age 50 years and older were routinely screened. Visit http://50andfearless.org/ and share the #50andFearless badge on social media to show you're ready to live more and fear less by getting a screening colonoscopy. According to the American Cancer Society: • Colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer for men and women in the U.S. • 1 in 20 have a lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer • 102,480 new diagnoses of colon cancer are expected in 2013 • 50,830 colon cancer deaths expected during 2013 • There are 1 million colorectal cancer survivors in the U.S. thanks to early detection and treatment
