Colorectal Cancer Awareness

Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer among American Indian and Alaska Native people, and the second leading cause of cancer death. There are usually no symptoms until it’s too late; regular screenings can detect polyps in the colon early, before they turn into cancer.
