Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Are you 50 years old—or older—and putting off colorectal cancer screening? March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness month and a good time to learn about this disease. What are your risks and why should you be screened?

Colorectal cancer is preventable and yet it is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Experts believe that 40,000 lives could be saved each year by widespread adoption of screening and early treatment.

Colorectal cancer can be surgically removed and the patient can return to normal health, if the disease is discovered in the early stages. Symptoms of colorectal cancer include constipation, abnormal gas, bloating, cramping, fatigue and irregular weight loss.

You should be screened for colorectal cancer beginning at age 50, so that the disease can be detected before symptoms appear. The cost of colorectal cancer screening, including colonoscopies, is covered by Medicare and many commercial health plans.

Dr. Keith Munson of the Jefferson Surgical Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia, recommends a proactive approach to colon health. As a board-certified colorectal surgeon, Dr. Munson has the highest level of experience and training in colorectal surgery and treatments.

“It’s amazing how many people die from colon cancer each year that could have been preventable,” says Dr. Munson.
