    Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer in the US. The good news is that colon cancer is very preventable and you are taking the best step by being screened for early signs. Everyone over age 50 should have this test - even if there are no problems or symptoms! Anyone who has a family history of this type of cancer should have the test earlier. Consult with your physician.
