Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in both men and women in the United States. Combined, it’s estimated there will be more than 150,000 new cases of colon and rectal cancer reported in the U.S. in 2022 alone. Colorectal polyps and colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at first. That’s why getting screened is so important. With early screening and testing, it is preventable, treatable, and beatable! The CDC updated recommendations to begin screening for colon cancer starting at age 45. This March during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, we encourage you and your loved ones to be aware of risk factors and get screened.
