– Guests: Dr. Brian McGee, Gastroenterologist at Arkansas Diagnostic Center | March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death among men and women combined in the United States. Colorectal cancer arises from pre-cancerous growths or polyps that grow in the colon. When detected early, polyps can be removed, halting their progression to colorectal cancer. Not only can it be detected, but it can also be prevented by having a colonoscopy. According to the American Cancer Society, the colon cancer death rate in this country could be cut in half if Americans simply followed recommended screening guidelines. Talk to your doctor about the screening test that is right for you. To learn more or make an appointment, contact Dr. Brian McGee at Arkansas Diagnostic Center, 8908 Kanis Road, Little Rock or call 501-227-7688.
