Together, cancers of the colon and rectum are among the most common cancers in the United States. They occur in both men and women and are most often found among people who are older than 50. People with a family history of colorectal cancer, polyps in the colon or rectum, or inflammatory bowel disease are at a greater risk than the general population. All men and women older than 50 should do a fecal occult blood test every year (stool cards). Join us to discusses prevention, early detection and the importance of screenings for Colorectal cancer. FREE fecal occult blood test kits will be distributed to all program participants.
