Many women think colon cancer is a men’s issue and don’t see the need for screening procedures like colonoscopies.
The truth is colon cancer doesn’t play favorites. It occurs in both women and men. According to the CDC colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer among women behind breast and lung cancer.
If you are a woman age 50 or older take the time to schedule a colonoscopy. This life saving test can detect benign polyps that can be removed during the procedure – before they have a chance to turn into cancer.
Don’t wait. Talk to your doctor or contact Colon & Rectal Specialists for an appointment. After all you don’t want to miss the chance to kiss those grandkids – and change their dirty diapers.
