UpNorthLive Interview: Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

Colon cancer or rectum is the third most common cancer in the United States and affects men and women.

Alexander Weick is a doctor in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology at Digestive Health Associates and has surgical privileges at Copper Ridge Surgery Center.

If you are over 45 or have risk factors, Weick advises you to talk to your primary care physician about getting screened.

Colorectal Cancer is preventable and beatable with regular screening and early detection.
