March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon Cancer is highly treatable if detected early and is up to 90% preventable.
Know the symptoms & get screened. Having a colonoscopy can save your life. I have had many people say they refuse to have this test because of the prep. My family history requires early screening and the prep in Canada is easier than ever before. If you have been putting this procedure off, please do not be afraid of having a colonoscopy. Talk to your Doctor about when screening should begin for you and if you have any symptoms, please see a doctor immediately. Colonoscopy screening saves lives. Don’t let fear or embarrassment get in the way of getting this important screening and maybe saving your own life.
