Fewer people are being diagnosed with colorectal cancer according to a new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It shows that the number of cases slipped 3.4% from 2003 to 2007, an annual decrease of about 66,000. The number of people dying from colorectal cancer also is declining - by 3% a year, the study finds.
Great news from the CDC - Colon Cancer rates in the US are going down. I am having my colonoscopy soon - just have to get it scheduled and take a day or two off. It's no one's favorite thing to do, but once the prep is done its no big deal.
