March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, there will be more than 100,000 new cases of colon cancer and more than 44,000 rectal cancer cases diagnosed in 2019. Colorectal cancer may cause over 50,000 deaths this year. However, 90% of colorectal cancers are preventable, but one out of three people who should be screened, aren't doing it! We are talking to Dr. Jimmy J. Hwang, from Levine Cancer Institute to understand colorectal cancer screening, prevention and treatment options. The discussion would touch upon identifying high risk groups who should opt for screening, available screening techniques, prevention of onset and treatment options, and guidance for efficient management of colorectal cancer.
