Colon Cancer Screening

Just going to the doctor increases the odds that you will decide to be screened for colon cancer. And what the doctor says during that visit can boost your odds of screening even more. That's according to a new Kaiser Permanente study published online in the American Journal of Managed Care. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, with about 50,000 people dying each year from the disease.
