March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.  According to the Colon Cancer Alliance, colon cancer is currently one of the top 3 cancer killers.  There is good news, though!  Over 90% of all cases of colon cancer can be prevented with recommended screening.  Despite its high incidence, colon cancer is one of the most detectable and, if found early enough, most treatable forms of cancer.  So, talk to your doctor and see if a screening is a good idea for you.  This is truly a case where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  For much more information and events surrounding National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, please visit the Colon Cancer Alliance.
