For ten years, the Minnesota Colon Cancer Coalition has been on a mission to make the words colon, colorrectal and colonoscopy a part of the everyday language. The organization believes it can overcome the fear and decrease deaths from the largely preventable cancer. Last year thousands come out to participate in the Get Your Rear in Gear walk and run.
A new at-home test to check for colon cancer is showing promising results. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic say the results are impressive.
