March 03, 2009
The American Cancer Society estimates that, in the United States this year, over 150,000 men and women will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and approximately 50,000 people will die from the disease. Despite its high incidence, colorectal cancer is one of the most detectable, and if found early enough, most treatable forms of cancer. Over 90% of those diagnosed while the cancer is still localized survive more than five years. Currently, however, only 37% of colorectal cancers are detected while still localized.
