National Health Observances for March 2020

Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. It affects all races and genders, but it’s especially threatening for those ages 50 and older. The good news is that regular screenings can help prevent the majority of cases. Unfortunately, many people don’t get screened or don’t know what to look for.

Symptoms of colorectal cancer include a change in bowel habits such as frequent diarrhea and constipation, continuing abdominal cramps, bloating and gas, and rectal bleeding found in stool. Though these symptoms may be due to other medical issues, it’s important to be screened for colorectal cancer if you experience them.

Speak with your doctor about receiving regular screenings, especially if you’re over the age of 50. Visit for more information.
