Colorectal Cancer


March is colorectal cancer month. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in the United States – for both men and women. The American Cancer Society estimates nearly 100-thousand people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in this country this year. More than 50-thousand will die of the disease in the U.S. this year. Dr. Elizabeth O’Neill, a family practice physician for Providence Medical Group, joined us today to share why screening is key in the fight against colorectal cancer.
