Colon Cancer – Risk Factors

March 8, 2022


Patients at risk for developing colon cancer are patients who obviously have a family history of colon cancer. They specifically need to be vigilant about the risk of colon cancer. In addition, as we age, the risk of colon cancer goes up. So that’s the reason for doing screening colonoscopies starting at age 50 and beyond, and possibly even earlier for some people. Also, the diet can have an effect on the risk of colon cancer, specifically high fat and high animal protein diets.
