Stop Colon Cancer Now

What is Stop Colon Cancer Now?

Blue Hen Surgery Center is part of Stop Colon Cancer Now, a community of 200 outpatient surgery centers and more than 700 physicians specializing in digestive tract treatment, including the prevention of colon cancer. We are working together to:

  • Save lives through prevention education
  • Empower people
  • Energize survivors to share their stories
  • Provide convenient screening locations
  • Support quality care

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month of March, we collaborate with StopColonCancerNow.com to raise awareness for colon cancer by encouraging at-risk patients to prevent colon cancer by completing or scheduling a colonoscopy.

You may be wondering when to schedule your first colonoscopy, and it might be sooner than you think. In May 2018, the American Cancer Society revised the recommended age for a first-time colon cancer screening to 45, due to an increased incidence of the disease among people under age 55.

Throughout both Colon Cancer Awareness Month and the rest of the year, StopColonCancerNow.com provides the latest news, information and resources about colon cancer screening and prevention.
