Colon Cancer Awareness Month
KELLY TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. It's a time to get checked out by your doctor, or a time to schedule a colonoscopy if you are due for one. Doctors recommend colonoscopies every 10 years starting at age 50. For Tish Showers of Selinsgrove, that started a lot sooner. "I started having colonoscopies every two years from the time I was 19," Showers said.
