In brief: Colon CA

Yes. But if you smoke or ever did then lung would move up to be more common.
Please add that to your risk possibilities.

In brief: : colon Cancer

Depending on your gender, colon cancer is either the second or third most common type of cancer in that age group.
It's vital to get screening colonoscopies at the appropriate times.
