How can colorectal cancer be prevented
I am a 35 year old male, last month my father died of colorectal cancer. The cancer was diagnosed too late and he barely lived a month after being diagnosed. I have heard that cancer is hereditary and runs in family. I wanted to know if colorectal cancer can be prevented? What measures should I take to prevent it?
