Colon Cancer Awareness

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States, and the second leading cause of cancer death.  In 2021, it is estimated that 149,500 people will be diagnosed with this highly preventable disease.  It affects men and women of all racial and ethnic groups, and is most often found in people 50 years or older.  However, incidence in those younger than 50 is increasing.  Preventive screening can help to decrease the rising number of people diagnosed with the disease.  The colorectal cancer survival rate has been increasing, due in part to increased awareness and screening.  Finding polyps and cancer in the earlier stages provides the best opportunity for successful treatment.
