March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States. There are an estimated 140,000 new cases diagnosed every year and about 50,000 people lose their lives to colorectal cancer each year. According to the American Cancer Society, the risk for a woman to develop colorectal cancer is approximately 4% over her lifetime.

Many women seek primary care from an OB/GYN, so it is important that women’s health professionals be aware of and screen for the common symptoms of colorectal cancer. These symptoms can include: blood in bowel movements, constipation or irregular bowel movements, cramps and bloating, severe stomach pain, and iron deficiency.

PathGroup offers laboratory tests that allow women’s health providers and their patients to better understand their risk of developing colorectal cancer. Contact a PathGroup representative to learn more about our testing options to identify a patient’s risk.
