Colorectal cancer, more commonly known as colon cancer, is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. However, this disease is largely preventable and highly curable with recommended screening and early detection. This month, NewYork-Presbyterian is encouraging patients and staff to learn more about colon cancer and the available prevention, treatment, and screening options through our "Make That Call" campaign. 2017's special theme at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is "Genetic Factors." Individuals' risk of colorectal cancer can be elevated based on a range of factors, including: smoking, obesity, and even diet. But did you know your family history can also put you at an elevated risk for colorectal cancer? GI faculty, fellows, and genetic counselors will be available to discuss these factors on 3/27 and 3/30 in the vending area of the Garden Cafe at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Visit our table to learn more about how genetics can raise your risk, and what you can do to prevent and detect colon cancer at any age.
