LA CROSSE (WKBT) – Screenings for colorectal cancer are now being strongly encouraged.

According to statistics released by the Mayo Clinic Health System, colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the U.S.

Getting screened can help doctors identify cancer at an early age before symptoms develop, increasing a person’s chance to be cured.

Mayo doctors say that more people under the age of 50 are developing colorectal cancer, a 10% increase in the total number of cases.

To help lower your chances of getting colon cancer, doctors recommend eating a balanced diet, not smoking, limiting alcohol and exercising on a regular basis.
