Addressing Colon Cancer

Colon cancer is one of the most deadly cancers in America, but also the one of the most treatable when detected early. Unfortunately, the number of people in their 20s and 30s diagnosed with colon cancer is increasing. And, each year, 2,000 South Carolinians are diagnosed with colon cancer, and 800 die from the disease.

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. In this WLTX interview, Dr. Edward Jakubs of Southern Surgical Group talks about risk factors, prevention and screening.
