March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month! Thousands join together in support and advocacy for those affected by this preventable disease. Did you know that over 100,000 new cases of colon cancer arise each year? A simple colonoscopy procedure can detect colorectal cancer before it happens!
According to the Colon Cancer Alliance:
- Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States
- An estimated 136,830 will be diagnosed with colon cancer in the United States this year
- 72% of all cases occur in the colon and 28% occur in the rectum
- The five-year survival rate for colon cancer is 90%
