Get Screened for Colorectal Cancer

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and Arizona Oncology, a practice in The US Oncology Network, would like to remind both men and women to speak with their healthcare providers about getting screened for the disease. By finding cancer—or polyps that may become cancer—early, it is easier to treat and possibly cure.

According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in men and women combined. It is estimated that approximately 132,700 new cases will be diagnosed in the United States this year, and nearly 49,700 people will lose their lives to the disease.
