About COLORECTAL CANCER CANADA
Colorectal cancer is currently the second leading cause of cancer death overall for men and women in Canada. Approximately 26,800 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer this year and sadly 9,400 will die of the disease. Despite these shocking numbers, the disease is still not well known or well understood. Current scientific literature indicates that up to 90% or more of colorectal cancer can be successfully treated or prevented through early detection and removal of pre-cancerous polyps and through diet and regular exercise.
