Colon Polyps & Cancer
For Your Visit
March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month, the perfect time to take control of your colon health. Since 2000, advocates have rallied together during the month of March to educate family, friends and their communities on colon cancer awareness.
Colon cancer affects both men and women, with over 95,000 new cases expected to be diagnosed in 2016 according to the American Cancer Society.
Colon Cancer Is Preventable
Colon cancer is a highly preventable disease. Unfortunately, caring for your colon simply isn’t on the same wavelength as other areas of the body that can be affected by cancer. While colon health isn’t a high-level concern for many until they reach middle age, it can lead to unchecked colon health and a false sense of security.

You can read Dr. Farrell’s review of The Colon Vitamin’s ingredients here.
A Colonoscopy Can Save Your Life
Though a colonoscopy isn’t recommended until age 50, people who are at a higher risk for colon cancer may need to think about their colon health earlier. Colon cancer is preventable through colonoscopy screenings. Colonoscopies can save lives by spotting precancerous or cancerous tissue, or polyps, allowing doctors to remove precancerous tissue and diagnose cancerous tissue as early as possible – before it spreads. Proper colon care and awareness are recommended in between each colonoscopy, which typically take place every ten years.
