Keeping Colon Cancer at Bay

Dr. Emily AlbrightColon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer among both men and women in the United States, and it’s never to be taken lightly. It kills about 50,000 Americans every year. Survival is highly related to the stage at which cancer is detected; that’s why screening is recommended for persons age 50 and over through some combination of testing. When cancer is discovered before it has spread to distant parts of the body, it is usually treatable, often with surgery alone. Even so, recurrence is a major problem. According to Emily Albright, M.D., Surgeon with Saint Anthony's Physician Group, the most important protection against recurrence, is the same tool that helped them detect cancer in the first place – regular screening and monitoring.
