Apples are a part of a healthy diet which can reduce your risk of colon cancer!
Thank you for supporting Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
Colon cancer symptoms can be confusing. Common stomach ailments or a change in bowel habits are common occurrences. They don’t, however, always mean that you have a serious condition such as colorectal cancer.
Did you know the rates for colon & rectal cancer have been declining among adults 50+, but rising in adults UNDER 50? Unfortunately, young-onset patients are more likely to be diagnosed in stage III or IV, when the disease is harder to treat.
While 75% of colon and rectal cancers happen to people with no known family history or other high risk factors; age, diet, family and personal medical history, and more, can increase your risks for colon cancer. But you can do things to reduce your risk as well.
A list of facts can be scary!
As you consider the information and facts about colorectal cancer, remember that through talking to your doctor, on-time screening, and timely evaluation of symptoms, colon cancer is preventable, treatable, and beatable!
