Did you know colon cancer is the second leading cause of overall cancer deaths in the United States? But it doesn’t have to stay this way. Early detection through screening can dramatically reduce your risk. This means having your colon checked regularly starting at age 50, or sooner if you are at higher risk.
March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Help slash these stats by joining the Colon Cancer Alliance’s Dress in Blue Day movement. Through this national campaign and their screening, research and patient support initiatives, we can knock colon cancer out of the top three cancer killers for good.
