It's Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
Here are some sobering statistics:
• 2nd leading cause of cancer death among men & women combined
• 3rd most commonly diagnosed cancer
• 1 in 20 people will be diagnosed in their lifetimes
• 1 in 3 people are not up-to-date with screening
• 60% of deaths could be prevented with screening hereditary/genetic stats
• People with a first-degree relative (parent, sibling or child) with colon cancer are between two to three times more likely to develop the cancer than those without a family history
• 25% of people diagnosed with colorectal cancer have a family history
Patients should start regular screenings at age 50 and repeat every ten years; it is acceptable to stop at age 75.
