#7 Removing a Colon Polyp And
Preventing Another Colon Cancer

GREAT NEWS! Colon cancer is one of the most preventable of all cancers. This is because screening tests can find polyps, so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. If you find and remove a colon polyp, a potential colon cancer can be prevented. This is quite different than most other common malignancies such as breast, prostate, and lung cancer. In those diseases, you must actually have cancer before the screening tests can show it. With screening, colon cancer, however, can be detected before it turns to cancer - as a polyp.
