During National Colorectal Cancer Month
Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. All during March, which is National Colorectal Cancer Month, Pennsylvania Gastroenterology (PA GI) will lead efforts in Central PA to raise awareness and encourage colon cancer screenings.
March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month and an excellent opportunity to become more aware of how to prevent and treat the disease by scheduling a colonoscopy.
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., even though 70 percent of all cancer cases could be prevented with early detection. The lifetime risk of developing colon cancer is one in 20; however, a variety of risk factors can increase those odds.
