Colorectal Cancer Awareness
Colorectal Cancer is preventable in many cases, making gastrointestinal health an important lifestyle consideration.
Eating foods high in fiber including fruits, veggies and whole grains can help regulate your digestive system and decrease your risk of developing colorectal cancer.
Those 45 and older should consider routine colonoscopy screenings for colorectal cancer.
Call your gastroenterologist to schedule your colonoscopy. Don’t have a gastroenterologist, visit echn.org to find one near you!
