Take action against colorectal cancer

-A A +A

March 20-26 is proclaimed Colorectal Cancer Awareness Week in New Mexico

Governor Susana Martinez has proclaimed March 20-26 as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Week in New Mexico.
As part of New Mexico’s participation in this annual national health observance, the New Mexico Department of Health Colorectal Cancer Program and the New Mexico Cancer Council encourage all New Mexicans age 50 and older to get regular screening for colorectal cancer.
Progress has been made in the war against colorectal cancer, according to the New Mexico Department of Health Colorectal Cancer Program.
Death rates from the disease have been dropping since the early 1990s, and incidence rates have been declining steadily over the past decade in both men and women.
The Colorectal Cancer Program attributes these strides to prevention and early detection through screening and increasingly effective treatment.
However, there is still more to be done.
Despite progress in the fight, many Americans are not getting lifesaving screening tests for colorectal cancer, and only 55 percent of all New Mexicans get regular screening for colorectal cancer.
However, colorectal cancer is one of the few cancers that can be prevented.
