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.
Did you know it's important to bring our kids to the clinic when they are well, too? During the months of August and September, Coal Country Community Health Center will be giving children ages 3-6 a gift when seen for a well-child check. Call to schedule at any of our locations today!
Coal Country Community Health Center will be holding preventative wellness exams for students in PreK-12th grade in May. A wellness exam may include a sports physical for the 2023-2024 school year if requested. The sports physical will be valid through the 2024 school year.
