Colorectal cancers are the fourth most common cancer in the United States, and the National Cancer Institute estimates about 1 in 20 will develop the cancer in their lifetime. However, thanks to better screening and improved treatments, the death rate associated with colorectal cancers is declining.
On Wednesday, December 5, 2018, join Cooper’s Jack Goldstein, MD, FACP, FACG, Gastroenterologist with the Cooper Digestive Health Institute and MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper as he discusses topics related to colorectal cancer prevention, including:
- importance of colon cancer screening
- new guidelines for screening at an earlier age (45 instead of 50)
- types of screening tests available
- how family and personal history can impact your risk for colorectal cancer
Dr. Goldstein will also discuss the impact diet and nutrition can have not only on cancers of the digestive tract, but on many cancers. Be sure to bring your questions!
