Not Enough Adults Tested for Colon Cancer

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn that not enough Americans are getting screened for colon cancer. A new study found that 1 in 3 (33 percent) of Americans 50 and older skip getting tested. These findings are unfortunate given that when found early, 90 percent of people with colon cancer live five years or longer after diagnosis, CBS.com writes.
