3 Things to Know
1. All Kentuckians age 50 and older should get regular colon cancer checks.*
2. Early colon cancer may have no symptoms.
3. 9 out of 10 colon cancers may be prevented or cured with regular checks.

*African Americans should begin screening at the age of 45. People with personal or family history of colon cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, or who are experiencing symptoms are considered "high risk" and should begin screening before age 50.
