Dr. Daniel Deem from Christie Clinic joins the Morning Show and in this week’s Morning Rounds he is discussing colorectal cancer awareness month.
In February 2000, President Clinton officially dedicated March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Since then, it has grown to be a rallying point for the colon cancer community where thousands of patients, survivors, caregivers and advocates throughout the country join together to spread colorectal cancer awareness by wearing blue, holding fundraising and education events, talking to friends and family about screening and so much more.
Stage describes the extent of the cancer in the body and is one of the most important factors in determining prognosis and treatment options.
The higher stages of cancer require advanced treatment options.
Stage 0 = Earliest stage of cancer
Stage IV = Most advanced stage of cancer
