Colon Cancer Awareness….Have You Been Screened

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of death from cancer. Colorectal cancer affects all racial and ethnic groups and is most often found in people ages 50 and older.

The best way to prevent colorectal cancer is to get screened regularly starting at age 50. There are often no signs or symptoms of colorectal cancer – that’s why it’s so important to get screened.

Dr Michael Buckmire is a colon and rectal surgeon here at Advanced Surgical Associates that can help you from the beginning with your screening and, if required, your surgical needs as well.
