March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, a month dedicated to spreading the word about Colon Cancer screening and prevention. Virginia Gastroenterology and Bon Secours were on The Hampton Roads Show studio this morning. Virginia Gastroenterology said that while the country has seen a significant decrease in colon cancer deaths, the western Hampton Roads area and parts of North Carolina seen an increase. Virginia Gastroenterology also explained that the problem is due, in large part, to a lack of health care access and prevention. That is why it is important for men to have a colonoscopy or other colon cancer screenings.
