Prevention of Colon Tumors

The most effective way to prevent colon cancer is to get regular colorectal screenings by colonoscopy after the age of 50. Florida Hospital physicians use colonoscopy to detect, identify and often remove colorectal polyps, precancerous growths inside the colon.  Preventable risk factors contributing to colon cancer include:

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol intake
  • Obesity
  • Inactivity
