Visit the Colon Cancer Awareness Month table at NYP/Weill Cornell and schedule your appointment for colon cancer screening 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 treatable with recommended screening and early detection. The American Cancer Society recently lowered its recommended starting age for screening from 50 to 45 years of age. This month, NYP is encouraging patients and staff to learn more about colon cancer screening through our 'Make That Call' campaign. Visitors and staff are invited to visit our table from Monday 3/18 through Wednesday 3/20 to speak to faculty, fellows and nurses about colon cancer, the new screening guidelines, and available screening options. Representatives will also be available to give a pre-screening questionnaire – if you qualify, you may be able to skip the office visit and book straight to colonoscopy
