Don't ignore symptoms

It’s important to get screened regularly because colon cancer doesn’t always cause symptoms. Call us if you have any of these symptoms:

  • Change in bowel habits.
  • Blood in or on your stool (bowel movement).
  • Diarrhea, constipation, or feeling that the bowel doesn’t empty all the way.
  • Cramping, abdominal pain or bloating that doesn’t go away.
  • Unexplained weight loss.

Reduce your risk

Be proactive about your GI health and reduce the risk of colon cancer. Be sure to:

  • Eat a healthy diet to help maintain and take control of your weight.
  • Stay active and get regular exercise.
  • Avoid tobacco and alcohol.
  • Most importantly, regular screening can detect early signs of colon cancer and should start at age 45.
