Know your options for colon cancer screening

Getting screened regularly is one of the best ways to prevent colon cancer. A screening can help find cancer even if you have no symptoms. And a colonoscopy isn’t the only test available. There are some you can do at home.

Even if you have no family history of colon cancer, you should get a colon screening.1 If you’re African American, your risk is greater. Talk to your doctor about when to start getting screened for colon cancer.
