March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death among cancer in the US. Overall, the lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is a little less than 1 in 20 (5%). Regular screening can prevent many cases of colorectal cancer altogether by removing polyps. Screening can also help find colorectal cancer early when it is small and has not spread to other parts of the body. Colorectal cancer is easier to treat when it is caught early. When caught before it has spread to other parts of the body the 5 year survival rate is about 90%. Only 4 in 10 colorectal cancers are found at this early stage when the cancer has not spread outside the colon or rectum. When the cancer has spread outside the colon and rectum, the survival rate is lower.

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month
According to The American Cancer Society, Cervical cancer used to be one of the most common causes of death for American women.  Over the past 30 years, the number of cervical cancer deaths has decreased by more than 50%.  The main reason for this decrease is that women are receiving regular Pap tests.  Usually there are no symptoms associated with early cervical cancers and pre-cancers.  Regular Pap tests and pelvic exams are the best way to find cervical cancer early.  Early detection is key to improving the outcomes of treatment.
