Colon cancer is one of the most preventable of all cancers. Looking for and removing polyps during a #colonoscopy can greatly cut down the chances of getting and of dying from colon cancer. Take control of your health and get a colonoscopy. #CancerPrevention
#ColonCancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. and is one of the most preventable of all cancers. During a #colonoscopy, we look for polyps. If we find a polyp, we can remove it before it becomes cancerous. If it has turned cancerous, a colonoscopy allows us to find it in its earliest stages, when it’s easiest to treat.
Please join us for a tweetchat with Stanford #ColonCancer expert Dr. Uri Ladabaum tomorrow, March 7 at noon Pacific Time on Twitter. If you have any questions for Dr. Ladabaum, please tweet them @StanfordHealth using the hashtag #CheckYourColon or post them in the comments below.
