Good News! You May Not Need A Tube Stuck Up Your Butt!

Men at low risk for colon cancer can rest a bit more easily tonight.
"This study showed that CT colonography is a good screening test for cancer for those at average risk," said Durado Brooks, MD, American Cancer Society’s director of prostate and colorectal cancer.
