Colorectal Cancer Awareness

Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States. The American Cancer Society’s estimates for the number of colorectal cancers in the United States for 2023 are:

106,970 new cases of colon cancer

46,050 new cases of rectal cancer

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, which is a great time to learn about this disease and, if appropriate, take steps to prevent it. CDHD offers free tests that can be used to detect colorectal cancer. Please call us at (308) 385-5175 for more information.
