Their mission is to improve Canadians’ health, health care system, and quality of life. Colon cancer is lethal in the United States with approximately 150,000 new cases of colon and rectal cancer diagnosed each year. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) www.cancer.gov, division of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) www.nih.gov 50,000 innocent Americans die every year form colon/rectal cancer. Colon/rectal cancer ranks as the third most common cancer in the United States.
December 3, 2008, Daytona Beach, FL. (JusticeNewsFlash.com)–Aggressive in the Central Florida courts, cancer injury attorney, John Rue, urges Americans to adopt Canada’s recent call to action and test for early detection of colon/rectal cancer. According to the Canadian Institutes of Health Reseach (CIHR) www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca when colon/rectal cancer is diagnosed early and cancer treatment begins immediately, the survival rate is over 90 percent. A new Canadian campaign advocating home screening for colon and rectal cancer may reduce deaths from the disease by catching it early. Diagnosing cancer before symptoms begin with home testing may increase the survival rate of many innocent Americans. The CIHR further states about 40 percent of the 20,000 diagnosed with colon cancer each year will die.
Assertive cancer prevention advocate, John Rue, a Volusia County cancer injury attorney with the cancer injury law firm of Rue & Ziffra in Daytona Beach, Florida informs Americans about home testing for colon and rectal cancer:
-The home fecal occult test works by screening blood in the stool which is an early sign of colon/rectal cancer.
-If the test is positive for blood call your doctor and make an appointment immediately. If you are experiencing any symptoms go
to the nearest hospital.
-Follow-up tests like colonoscopies check for colon polyps, growths, and cancers.
-Studies show 16% reduction in deaths from colon/rectal cancer when patients have regular colonoscopies.
-Symptoms of colon/rectal cancer may also include changes in bowel habits, bright red or very dark blood in the stool, diarrhea/constipation, narrowed stools, abdominal discomfort, unexplained weight loss, exhaustion and vomiting.
Concerned Daytona Beach cancer injury attorney, Rue, informs all Florida residents of the importance of knowing the risks of colon and rectal cancer and new developments in early cancer detection. If you or your love ones show signs of any of the above symptoms please consult with a qualified physician who specializes in the early detection and treatment of colon and rectal cancer.
