Atlantic Health System is joining the American Cancer Society in its quest to have 80% of adults 50 years of age and older regularly receiving screenings for colorectal cancer by 2018. You can help by spreading the word about the importance of detection methods like colonoscopies and stool tests, also called fecal occult blood tests (FOBT). When caught in the early stages, colorectal cancer is more likely to be successfully treated, and in some cases, can even be prevented through the removal of pre-cancerous tissue.
