Lifelines 2 - Colorectal Cancer and Asian Americans
Narrator: This is Lifelines, from NIH Radio.
Ma: I’m Dr. Grace Ma, with Temple University’s Center for Asian Health. Some of you have heard the good news about colorectal cancer, but many Asian Americans may not be aware of it. The number of people who are diagnosed with colorectal cancer and those who die from the disease in the United States has declined over the last two decades. This decline is likely due to increased colorectal cancer screening. Unfortunately, colorectal cancer screening rates remain very low among Asian Americans. Several different colorectal cancer screening tests are available. The National Cancer Institute offers the latest research and information. Visit www.cancer.gov or call 1-800-4-CANCER.
