March is Colon Cancer Awareness month
March 4th, 2016

Know your numbers 1280_1457040633100_737034_ver1.0Colorectal cancer affects both men and women. It is the third most diagnosed cancer, and it is the second deadliest form of the disease. Less than half of colorectal cancers are caught at an early stage when they are most treatable. The Minnesota Department of Health says 69% of people over age 50 are getting screened. Nationwide, deaths due to colon cancer have been on the decline, mostly due to earlier detection.
Colon cancer can strike anyone at any age; however, most cases appear in people over age 50. People who have a parent, sibling or child with colon cancer are two- to three-times more likely to develop the disease. Ethnicity also plays a role. African-American men and women have a higher rate of colon cancer, as do Jews of Eastern-European descent.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) says if caught early enough, the five-year survival rate can be as high as 90%. It recommends that screenings start at age 50. If colon cancer runs in the family, earlier starting ages should be considered.
