The Importance of Early Screening



    A Test For Life

    Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer of men and women over the age of 50.

    However, colorectal cancer can be prevented through regular screening tests to find precancerous growths in the colon. These growths can then be removed before they turn into cancer.

    If the cancer is found early and treated properly, more than 90 percent of patients survive five years or more and that's why taking this test is so important.

    Pick up your "A Test For Life" kit at your nearest Good Neighbor Pharmacy from March 30 - April 26.

    On Tuesday, April 14 from 5 PM to 7 PM local experts will be on hand to take your calls about colorectal cancer.
