Colorectal cancer is killing more 20- to 30-year-olds. We now have one clue about why. A new study published Thursday in JAMA offers one potential explanation: the rising rates of obesity. http://ow.ly/3Uvl30mcGhY | browardgi.com

Young adults not immune to colon cancer. Ryan Halladay was 39 when he began noticing blood in his stool. Doctors, dismissing the bleeding as hemorrhoids. A trip to the ER for pain caused by severe constipation was brushed off. http://ow.ly/UAHA30m5RHz | browardgi.com

95% of colon cancers begin as polyps. Cologuard is not as good at finding pre-cancerous polyps. Unlike colonoscopy, it can’t remove them. Screening for colorectal cancer is very important. It will kill 50,000+ Americans this year. http://ow.ly/UNxA30lYBhA | browardgi.com

A colonoscopy (koe-lun-OS-kuh-pee) is an exam used to detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube (colonoscope) visualizes the bowel. It truly saves lives. http://ow.ly/he4z30lVd50 | browardgi.com

Every year, 50,000+ Americans die from colon cancer. As many as 1 in 3 colon cancer deaths could be avoided with proper screening. Some 14,000+ colon-cancer deaths in the US (28% of all deaths) could be prevented every year. http://ow.ly/bItg30lPGAM | browardgi.com
