Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and a leading cause of death among men and women in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Society. March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness month and there’s no better time to get screened for colon cancer and learn more about the disease. 

Seth Rosen, MD, colorectal surgeon for Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, and vice chief of staff at Emory Johns Creek Hospital will hold a free lecture on colorectal cancer on Tues., March 23.

Rosen’s lecture will address the following questions:

  • What is colorectal cancer (CRC)?
  • What is my risk for developing CRC?
  • What are proven ways to help prevent CRC?
  • What are my screening options?
  • What treatments are available for CRC?
  • What is robotic surgery and how is it used to treat CRC?
