March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S., but it doesn’t have to be. Colorectal cancer doesn’t always cause symptoms, especially early on. Finding it early by getting screened is key. Hamilton Physician Group (HPG) – Gastroenterology recommends that you talk with your doctor about a colonoscopy. Pictured are some staff member at HPG – Gastroenterology.
