Know Your Colorectal Cancer Risk to Protect Your Whole Health

Colon cancer is preventable if you take the right steps with your trusted health care partner. Colorectal cancer screenings, or colonoscopies, can be lifesaving by finding and removing pre-cancerous polyps before they turn into cancer.

Getting a colonoscopy is the single most important thing you can do to prevent colorectal cancer. Regular screening is recommended starting at age 45 or sooner if you have a family history of colorectal disease.

Take the first step toward understanding your colorectal cancer risk with our quick online assessment.
