Colorectal Cancer

Many factors contribute to the prevention, or conversely—a greater risk—for colon cancer; age, heredity, diet, lifestyle. Some factors can’t be changed, like age and heredity. Some can—diet and lifestyle. Researchers are closing in on finding the cause, and the cure. But they aren’t there yet. University Hospitals Geneva Medical Center reminds you that everyone must remain vigilant about prevention or early detection of colorectal cancer. Talk with your physician and educate yourself. Know the risk factors. Know the signs and symptoms—and also know that sometimes colon cancer can be caught and beaten even before symptoms appear. Know what preventive measures to take and push the odds more in your favor. Know your treatment options. Proactive is protective.
