March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. A colonoscopy is a screening that can identify cancers early when the odds of successful treatment are highest. It can also help find polyps that can be removed before they become cancerous. The American Cancer Society recommends screenings for these cancers begin at age 45. We’re here for preventive screenings, like colonoscopies, today and every day.
In an effort to create awareness and encourage folks to get preventive screenings, the virtual colon has been at Palace Pharmacy in Lander for several weeks and awareness stickers were placed on the popcorn bags and ads on the movie screens at the Riverton theaters.
