Get screened for colorectal cancer
March 16, 2012
March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. We know. It’s not a test you’re looking forward to. But because colon cancer has no early warning signs and can be deadly if it progresses, screening is essential. Colorectal cancer is highly preventable and if caught early, it’s highly curable.
