Colon Cancer can be prevented and treated if detected early. It is the second most common cancer found in women and the third most common cancer in men and having colonoscopy and cancer screening can save lives.
Doctors advise that a Colon cancer screening is done at least every 5 years from the age of 45.
Signs and symptoms of colon cancer include: a persistent change in your bowel habits, including diarrhoea or constipation or a change in the consistency of your stool, rectal bleeding or blood in your stool.
