Colon Cancer Screenings and Prevention

PORTSMOUTH, Va, (WAVY) – March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, a month dedicated to spreading the word about Colon Cancer screening and prevention. Dr. Pramod Malik from Virginia Gastroenterology and Bon Secours was in The Hampton Roads Show studio this morning. Dr. Malik 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. Dr. Malik 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.
