Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States. According to cancer.org, about 1 in 22 men and 1 in 24 women are at risk of developing colorectal cancer in their lifetime.
Colorectal cancer is the number two cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, even though it’s one of the most preventable and treatable forms of cancer, if caught early.

Know your risks of developing colorectal cancer
A Cleveland Clinic colon cancer risk assessment survey found that respondents who exercised more, followed a healthy diet and did not smoke were less likely to have a personal history of colorectal cancer or colon polyps.
Know your family history

Up to 30 percent of colorectal cancer patients have a family history of the disease. Five percent of all cases of colorectal cancer are hereditary, where a mutated gene causes the cancer and can be passed down from a parent to a child.

Lifestyle and nutrition

You may be at increased risk for developing colorectal cancer if you drink alcohol, use tobacco, don’t get enough exercise, and/or if you are overweight. Smoking increases the risk of precancerous polyps and colorectal cancer, as does obesity. A diet high in fat and calories and low in fiber, fruits and vegetables has been linked to a greater risk of developing colorectal cancer.
Know your family history

Up to 30 percent of colorectal cancer patients have a family history of the disease. Five percent of all cases of colorectal cancer are hereditary, where a mutated gene causes the cancer and can be passed down from a parent to a child.


Recent research indicates that an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocol — that permits patients to eat before surgery, limits opioids by prescribing alternate medications, and encourages regular walking — reduces complication rates and speeds recovery. It can reduce blood clots, nausea, infection, muscle atrophy, hospital stay and more.   View Article
