Colon Cancer Awareness

Screening Saves Lives!

Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death. But it doesn't have to be this way; through screening, it is one of the most preventable diseases.

Placentia-Linda Hospital supports the Colon Cancer Alliance by helping to get the word out about colon cancer.

However, colon cancer is different than most cancers - it's largely preventable and beatable. That's why we’re here, to share the message that colon cancer screening saves lives. Colon cancer can happen to anyone at anytime, often without any symptoms, making screening that much more important!

From making healthy choices to finding the right screening test, we're committed to knocking this disease out.

  • Colon cancer is most preventable through screening
  • Colon cancer is up to 90% beatable when caught early
