Newsmaker: Colon Cancer Awareness Month


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month.

Doctor William Polk of Tristar Centennial joined News 2 via phone to discuss the importance of colon health.

Polk says colon cancer is the third most common cancer and largely a preventable disease with proper screenings.
