March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, Fox Chase Cancer Center is urging both men and women to schedule a colorectal cancer screening. The lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is approximately 1 in 21 (4.7%) for men and 1 in 23 (4.4%) for women.

“Regular screening is inarguably one of the best ways to detect colorectal cancer early, when it is most curable or even totally preventable,” says David Weinberg, MD, Chair of Medicine and Chief of the Gastroenterology Section at Fox Chase.
