We know that screening colonoscopy saves lives. So, it may be surprising to learn that even with all the publicity surrounding Colon Cancer Awareness this month, fewer women still get screened for colorectal cancer than men. Why is this the case? Among some women, there is a misguided belief that they are less likely to get colorectal cancer (CRC) than men, but the truth is they are equally affected. In fact, more than 71,000 women are diagnosed with CRC each year and nearly 26,000 die from the disease. Despite this fact, most women believe that breast, uterine, cervical and ovarian canc ..read more

Almost 60,000 people per year die from colon cancer, and it’s the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. What most people don’t realize is that this disease is one of the few cancers that are preventable. If colon cancer is detected in its early stages, the five-year survival is over 90%. Women are affected by this disease almost as much as men are, and the incidence seems to increase with age. Although this disease is rarely seen before the age of 40, family history or other factors may increase the likelihood of getting the disease at a younger age. The best thing you can do to pre ..read more
