New Colorectal Cancer Clinic Opens at TKC  

UAB faculty from surgery, radiation-oncology, and hematology-oncology have come together to create a one-stop shop for colorectal cancer care. The new multi-disciplinary colon cancer clinic opened February 28, 2018 at The Kirklin Clinic, just in time to celebrate Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer affects people in all racial and ethnic groups and is most often found in people age 50 and older; but screening can have a huge impact. If everyone age 50 and older were screened regularly, 6 out of 10 deaths from colorectal cancer could be prevented.
