Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Highly rated nonprofits committed to the advancement of research and care for colon cancer and rectal cancer patients

Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month Header Image
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society, and it is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women. Although the number of individuals being diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer has dropped overall because of increased screening and lifestyle changes, cases of colorectal cancer have increased in adults under the age of 50, while decreasing in older adults. 
The American Cancer Society predicts that in 2022, colorectal cancer is expected to cause over 52,000 deaths.
