Our team was happy to support colon cancer prevention efforts by wearing blue on Friday, March 2nd as a method of increasing awareness.
Please see the below message from Hudson Headwaters Health Network on prevention:
Did you know colon cancer is the second leading cause of overall cancer deaths in the United States? Early detection can dramatically reduce your risk. This means having your screening done consistently starting at age 50, or sooner if you are at higher risk.
Please talk to your Doctor about the best option for you:
- High-sensitivity fecal occult blood tests (FOBT)
