How to prevent colorectal cancer

The two best ways to prevent colorectal cancer are a healthy diet and regular screening. Polyps in the colon usually take 10-15 years to develop into cancer. This is why screening is important for the early detection and treatment of colorectal cancer. One method of screening is colonoscopy, during which most polyps can be removed before they have a chance to turn into cancer. Talk to your doctor about which method of colorectal cancer screening is right for you.
