Due to the effect of western diet and lifestyle, the occurrence of Colon Cancer is becoming much younger in the U.S. Colon Cancer is now the third most commonly diagnosed cancer for Chinese American men and the second for Chinese American women. Among all types of cancers, Colon Cancer is also the third leading cause of cancer death.
DCCC and AACCS have invited Dr. Son Do to give a lecture about Colon Cancer. Dr. Do is among the founding Board members of Digestive Health Associates of Texas. He is also actively involved in promoting cancer screening and hepatitis B screening/treatment for Asian Americans. He has been in practice for over 20 years.
We will also provide free fecal occult blood test (FOBT) to participants with age between 18 and 75 years old. The FOBT is a lab test used to check stool samples for hidden occult blood which may indicate colon cancer. Please join us!
