As we approach March 2014, which is colon cancer awareness month, I wanted to provide information to those in San Antonio TX on this cancer killing disease and that we basically have a cure.  Awareness is the key to beating colon cancer!

The cure is rather simple – get screened for colon cancer.  You just need to follow the colon cancer screening guidelines provided by the American College of Gastroenterology to determine when you should get this preventative treatment.  Be aware of factors that could move forward your suggested screening age like family history, ethnicity and individual symptoms.  Ask your physician when is the appropriate for you to get screened based on these established guidelines.
