NEW YORK - New research finds men with prostate cancer have an increased risk of

developing colon cancer.

Researchers at the University of Buffalo say prostate cancer patients have

significantly more colon polyps than men without prostate problems.

While most polyps are benign, studies show many colon cancers begin as polyps. Men

with prostate cancer are advised to be especially diligent about having

routine colonoscopies.
