March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month
Mar 01, 2016
Colon cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers. It is the third most common cancer in the United States. Although it is so common, colon cancer is also the most treatable. Screening tests can detect polyps and remove them before they become cancerous.
- 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable, treatable and beatable when diagnosed in early stages with screening tests.
- There are currently more than one million colon cancer survivors in the U.S. alone.
Suburban Imaging is an active partner in the fight against colon cancer. We offer virtual colonoscopy for patients who are unable to undergo a traditional colonoscopy or whose healthcare provider recommends it.
