Most people don’t look forward to things like a colonoscopy, but contrary to popular belief, prepping for a colonoscopy does not have to be a time filled with anxiety or fear.
Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is one of the most common and deadly cancers in the United States. Colon cancers begin as benign polyps in the colon or rectum and can take years to develop into cancer.
The CDC indicates us that colon cancer is the third most common cancer that affects both men and women. Sadly, colorectal cancer is also rising among young people.
Now more than ever, it’s important to make sure that you are proactively taking the steps to be sure your colon is healthy early in life!
