Mount Sinai Health System Experts Share Tips for Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month this March

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in both men and women in the United States. Although highly treatable and preventable, about 140,000 Americans are still diagnosed and more than 50,000 people die each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, and less common genetic syndromes such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) or Lynch syndrome, significantly increase the risk of developing colon cancer. These patients are recommended to be screened younger and more frequently.
