Colon Cancer Survivors Share Their Stories

Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of death among all cancers, yet it is also highly curable if detected early. That is why doctors urge regular colonoscopy screenings starting at age 50, or earlier if there is a family history. As many patients can attest, a colonoscopy can truly be a lifesaver, especially since colon cancer often has no obvious symptoms. The following inspiring stories from University Hospitals patients show just how important colorectal cancer screenings can be in helping to beat the odds.
