So, what are you waiting for? Call your doctor today.
Which test should you choose?
Of course, discuss boththese options with your doctor and, with his or her assistance, choose the right test for your situation.
The Thanksgiving holiday is a perfect time to sit down with your relatives and compile your family history for your doctor’s visit, as well a great opportunity to encourage them to be tested for colon cancer themselves. Next year, you might be thankful you did.
