Moores Cancer Center Offers Awareness Seminar

    UCSD’s Rebecca and John
    Moores Cancer Center

    will offer a free public seminar on March 15 to discuss the prevention and
    screening of colorectal cancer.

    The event, which will be held at the center from 10
    a.m.
    to 1 p.m., coincides
    with Colon Cancer Awareness Month and will include topics such as “Importance
    of Colorectal Cancer Screening and Screening Strategies” and “Family History
    and Genetic Testing.”

    Colorectal cancer, which occurs in the colon or rectum, is
    the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. According to the American Cancer Society, the
    five-year survival rate for those treated in the early stages of colorectal
    cancer before it has spread is greater than 90 percent. However, only 39 percent of colorectal cancer
    cases are diagnosed at an early stage.
