“It is important to begin screenings for colon cancer at age 45,” said Methodist Mansfield Medical Center President Juan Fresquez. “Screening tests can find precancerous polyps that can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening tests can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best.”
