Did you know that March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month? To kick it off, Charlotte Gastro is having a spirit week February 27-March 3. Each day will have a different theme dedicated to our colon cancer survivors, care-takers, and those getting screened.
DAY Four: Throwback Thursday
We took a step back in time today to recognize that age matters—but not always. While the rate of colon cancer in those 50+ has decreased since 1985, the rates for those younger have increased. Everyone 50 and older should get screened. Others should know the risk factors and symptoms.
