Live to laugh another day.
Let’s be honest. Certain things about health exams can make you laugh. Like those gowns that don’t fully close in the back. Or, how about funny hats and no-slip socks. And while your care might have a funny side, getting screened for colorectal cancer is no joke. 
Screening can detect colorectal cancer early and save lives. Learn more about the types of tests available. Talk to your doctor about the right time to get screened. And know the risk factors, which include:
  • Aging
  • Family history of colorectal cancer
  • Having polyps
  • Overusing alcohol
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise
  • Smoking
  • History of certain Gastrointestinal (GI) conditions
