During this month, hospitals and medical fa- cilities across the nation focus their attention on preventing, treating and curing colorectal cancer. According to the CDC, colorectal cancer, which occurs in the colon or rectum, is the leading cause for cancer death in Montana and the United States. This March, Sidney Health Center Cancer Care and the Richland County Health Depart- ment are teaming up to ' host a free Men’s Health Screening on March 15 from 3-5 pm. at the Can- cer Care Suite, located at 214 14th Avenue South- west in Sidney. This free colorectal and prostate cancer screening for men be- tween the ages of 55-75 years will include a PSA (prostate specific anti- gen) lab draw test, a DRE (digital rectal exam) by Dr. Ralf Kiehl, radiation oncologis,t and a com- plimentary FIT (fecal immunochemical test) take—home kit. No' appointment is necessary to take advan- tage of the screening. In fact, getting tested for colorectal and prostate cancer could save a life. On average, the lifetime risk of developing colon cancer is about one in 23 for men and women com- bined. And according the American Cancer So- ciety, about one in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer dur- ing his lifetime. Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with prestate cancer do not die from it. In fact, more than 2.9 million men in the United States whoahave been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point are still alive today. “The key to improving healthcare outcomes is through routine screen- ing and early diagnosis of cancer,” Dr. Kiehl said. “Typically in rural areas, patients do not seek medical attention until they are late in the course of their disease. I believe we must provide opportunities for people living in the Mondak region to get evaluated on a regular basis.” The American Can— cer Society encourages people who have no iden~ tified risk (other than age) to begin regular colorectal cancer screen- ing at age 50. Regular screening can, in many cases, prevent colorectal cancer altogether. This is because some polyps, or growths, can be found and removed before they have a chance to turn into cancer. There are several different tests that can berused to screen for colorectal cancer. However, a colonoscopy is considered to be the “gold standard” for test— ing since all other tests have to be followed up is with a colonoscopy if anything is discovered. This type of screening is recommended every 10 years. The take-home FIT kit looks for tiny amounts of blood in the stool, because cancers in the colon and rectum sometimes bleed. To take this test, individuals will take the kit home and return a sample to the lab for testing. With recommended screening, colorectal and prostate cancer can be prevented or detected at its earliest stage. If you are 55 years or older, take time to attend the Men’s Health Screening on March 15. All participants will receive a complimentary drink card to a local establishment. .
