Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men AND women in the United States. In fact, the American Cancer Society estimates that there will be over 100,000 new cases of colon cancer developing in the United States in 2021.
The good news is that the rate of diagnosis is dropping each year, and this is largely due to the advancement of screening technology. Caldwell Medical Center offers patients a variety of colorectal screening options, and encourages patients over 50, or anyone with pre-existing factors that could contribute to the development of colon cancer, to consider taking preventive measures. If it’s time to take a closer look, we’re here to help!
