March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Early Detection Saves Lives

Your best defense against colorectal cancer is screening. Unlike some other cancer types, colorectal cancer can be prevented or cured if found early. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Yet, Hoag Family Cancer Institute hopes to change that statistic by increasing awareness that colorectal cancer is a highly preventable form of cancer with proper screening.
