Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the second leading cause of death from cancer in the US. It occurs in the bowel invading both the colon and rectal regions and is asymptomatic in early stages. Every year, the month of March is celebrated as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. A blue ribbon is used to create awareness for screening, early detection, prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer.
