As we approach March, which is set aside as Colon Cancer Awareness Month, the American Cancer Society has announced that awareness is working! There are two statistics that are relevant to such a significant decline:
- Colon Cancer Deaths are down sharply
- Number of new cases diagnosed are also down - this is due to polyps being removed prior to them becoming cancerous.
Let's continue the trend. Do you know your risk? Do you need more information about colonoscopy? Then take the most important step - request an appointment with a specialist at Gi Associates to be screened in one our dedicated Endoscopy Centers. You do not need to have a referral from a primary care physician.
