March is Colorectal Awareness Month

Did you know colorectal cancer is the second deadliest cancer in the U.S.? Paragon Orthopedic Center wants to remind Southern Oregon about keeping your body in tip top shape by doing the maintenance recommended by medical professionals, and that includes screenings for colorectal cancer (CRC). Most of these cancers start as a polyp and they are detected by colonoscopy. A colonoscopy also allows doctors to detect the warning signs of CRC and prevent the disease. It is a fairly simple procedure where most patients wake up feeling like they had a good nap. The Colorectal Cancer Alliance has more information. Catch it early for the most effective treatment! If you regularly are screened, kudos to you, but if you don’t, get yourself scheduled today!
