Local Healthcare Organizations Partner to Bring Colossal Colon(R) Educational Exhibit to Detroit Science Center, March 13 - 18, for Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

DETROIT, March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Colorectal cancer (cancer that begins either in the colon or rectum) is the third most common cancer in both men and women in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 148,810 Americans were diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2008, with about 5,150 cases appearing in Michigan. Nationally, approximately 49,960 people died from colorectal cancer last year alone.

In recognition of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (March 2009), the Colorectal Cancer Awareness Network of Southeast Michigan (CRAN) has teamed up with several metro Detroit healthcare providers, including the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society, to bring the Colossal Colon(R) to the Detroit Science Center.

The Colossal Colon(R) is a 40-foot long, 4-foot tall oversized model of the human colon designed to educate people about colorectal cancer and other diseases of the colon. Visitors can crawl through the Colossal Colon(R) to see examples of cancerous and non-cancerous polyps, various stages of colorectal cancer, Crohn's disease, diverticulosis, ulcerative colitis and hemorrhoids.

Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic digestive disorders known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Over 1.4 million people are affected by IBD, with 10 percent of those people under the age of 18.

Colorectal cancer is often preventable with screening and early-detection. Screenings will often detect polyps, a pre-cancerous growth that can lead to colorectal cancer.
