Do It For Your Buddy

Promoting Colon Cancer Awareness

The only clear method of detection for colon cancer is regular colonoscopies.

Colon cancer is
very treatable if detected early.

Consult with your doctor on all aspects of your health, diet, level of physical fitness, tobacco and alcohol use, and family history. Although colon cancer is more common in people over 50, it affects people of all ages. Common indicators include:

- A change in your bowels
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Blood in the stool
- General abdominal discomfort
- Unexplained weight loss
- Tiredness and fatigue
- Vomiting

When it comes to your health, you have to be your own advocate. Don't let embarrassment stand in the way of something this important. Your life depends on it.
