140,000 are diagnosed with and 50,000 who die from colorectal cancer each year, and a majority of the cases occur in adults older than 50. Since March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, we want to shed some light onto this particular type of cancer and hopefully provide some insight for those who have little knowledge about the disease.
Risks for colorectal cancer increases as a person age, that is why over 90% of the cases are in people 50 and older. The best way to fight colorectal cancer is through cancer screening. Screening detects early precancerous polyps for colorectal cancer, and prevents the cancer from forming by removing these polyps. Moreover, if the cancer cells already exist, but it is detected early through screening, treatment can lead to a cure. The most important thing to note here is that people living with colorectal cancer or have the precancerous polyps might not experience symptoms until it is too late, so being proactive about screening can definitely help prevent more serious consequences from this disease that affects so many.
