In today's Health Matters, A new study out of Austria is making the case for earlier colon cancer screening for men.

Researchers with the Medical University of Vienna say their study found tumors tend to develop more often and earlier in men than women.
The study looked at the screening results of 44,000 350 people over a four-year period.

It found men were almost twice as likely as women to have abnormal growths.

A US expert says the findings are interesting. But, he says it's too soon to change the guidelines and start urging people to get screened before they turn 50.
