March is Colon Cancer Awareness month which focuses on the importance of screening with a colonoscopy. According to the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, every year 136,000 new cases of colorectal cancer are diagnosed in the United States and 50,000 die from colorectal cancer. The statistics of this disease are unsettling because a colonoscopy could save at least 30,000 people each year. This screening could literally be the difference between life and death.
Dr. Demarre Jones, a Gastroenterologist with GI Associates and Jeremy Jungling, a colon cancer survivor, sat down with Rebecca Turner on Good Things to talk about all things colon cancer.
