Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S., but it doesn’t have to be.

Screening finds pre-cancerous polyps, so they can be removed before they turn into cancer.

Screening also finds this cancer early, when treatment works best.

If you’re 50 or older, talk with your doctor. Decide which screening test is right for you.

And please, get screened for colorectal cancer.
