Encourage Screening, Save Lives!
Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., but it doesn’t have to be. Colon cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer, and one of the most treatable when caught early. According to recent statistics, Kentucky ranks worst in the nation for colon cancer mortality. What makes that statistic so frustrating to healthcare providers is that when colon cancer is detected early, it can be successfully treated in more than 90% of cases. Simply put, screening saves lives.
March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month! You can help spread awareness about the life saving benefits of colon cancer screening by participating in Dress In Blue Day on March 4, 2011, and encouraging your patients, colleagues, friends and family to be screened.
A provider screening tip sheet has been prepared for easy reference when making screening and surveillance recommendations.
