Colorectal Cancer Screening – What are the Barriers? – On Saturday, March 4 our host Dr. Marianne T. Ritchie talks with Dr. Mark B. Pochapin about colorectal cancer screening. Colorectal Cancer is the second MOST common cause of cancer death, the MOST preventable cancer, but the MOST likely cancer screening test people avoid. Listen to this conversation and learn how the bowel prep has become easier, why family history of colorectal cancer and polyps are both important, and other important facts such as more people die of colorectal cancer than breast cancer.
