March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness month - Regular screening, beginning at age 50, is key to preventing cancer of the colon or rectum. If you’re 50 to 75 years old, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. If you’re younger than 50 and think you may be at high risk of getting colorectal cancer, or if you’re older than 75, ask your doctor if you should be screened.  For information on colorectal and other cancer screenings, click here.
