Did you know that colorectal cancer—cancer of the colon or rectum—is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States? Each year, about 55,000 Americans die of colorectal cancer. That’s one life lost every 9.5 minutes. However, up to 60% of those deaths could have been prevented through early screenings.
