Did You Get Screened During Colon Cancer Awareness Month?
Many thanks to our friends at New England Cancer Specialists for being our partner during Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Now that the month is wrapping up and you've learned that several hundred Mainers die each year from colon cancer, you know that the time is NOW for you to take ACTION. And that means talking to your doctor and setting up a screening. 90% of colon cancer cases can be prevented by proper screening and getting a colonoscopy at 50. 40 if it's in your family. This is an issue near and dear to me as my Dad had colon cancer, which means that I ALSO have to be really vigilant by watching diet, exercising and talking to my docs! I was glad to catch up with Dr. Matthew Dugan from New England Cancer Specialists on the BLM Morning Show. Listen to the interview here.
