Wear Blue on March 5th for Colon Cancer Awareness
Today is the Colon Cancer Alliance’s Dress in Blue Day to help spread awareness of colon and rectal cancer.Â It’s a reminder of how screening and early detection can help thousands of people prevent and survive this common cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society, “colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States.Â It is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States when men and women are considered separately, and the second leading cause when both sexes are combined.”
It is important to get screening if you have a family history of colon and rectal cancer and if you’re over 50.Â When found early, colorectal cancer can be curable, even preventable if polyps are found before they’ve turned into cancer.
