Colorectal cancer (commonly called colon cancer) is the third most common cancer in men and women in the United States, and the third leading cause of cancer death.
According to the American Cancer Society, the death rate from this disease has been dropping thanks to improvements in colon cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment. There are screening tests available that can actually stop colon cancer before it starts, or catch it early, when treatments are more likely to be successful. Treatments have also gotten better over the years.
Dr. Groteluschen, Green Bay Oncology President and Physician joined us on “Wisconsin Tonight” to talk about early detection and treatment. This is the largest cancer-fighting team in the region, and Dr. Groteluschen has been providing care in Northeast Wisconsin for 40 years.
