Colon Cancer Can Be Defeated

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, and in advance of that, Dr. Davor Vugrin, an oncologist,  talked with KFYO about the threat of colon cancer.

“It’s very common…and is potentially preventable, because usually people have a pre-cancerous lesion for several years before it emerges in the cancer,” Vugrin said.  “Also, if you detect it early, the majority of people are curable.  So we can prevent it, we can cure it, and we can beat it.”

You can hear the entire interview with Dr. Vugrin on This Week in Lubbock, Sunday morning at 6 o’clock on KFYO.
