Not to Bum you out but March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

by Elizabeth Suelzer, MLIS, AHIP on 2023-03-01T08:00:00-06:00 in Clinical Practice | 0 Comments

According to the National Institute of Health, colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the United States. Screening is the best way to detect and remove abnormal growths, or polyps, before they turn into cancer. If you are age 45 or older, it is recommended that you start screening for this frequently over-looked disease.

Don’t know how to bring the topic up with a loved one? Maybe this CDC video can help.

The library provides many resources on this and other cancers. To learn more about colorectal cancer, see our Oncology Guide.
