March Is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. Despite its decline in Americans over age 50, its rates among younger individuals (age 30 ‒ 50) have increased significantly. Changes in lifestyle and dietary habits over past decades ‒ are linked to this increase.
Symptoms of colorectal cancer usually appear ONLY with more advanced stages of the disease. They include weakness, fatigue, a change in bowel habits, rectal bleeding, cramping, steady abdominal pain or feeling the need to have a bowel movement that is not relieved by doing so. If they are experienced, you should see your health care provider immediately.
Remember the early stages of colorectal cancer have NO SYMPTOMS. A HEALTHY DIET with plenty of raw and fresh fruits and vegetables AND ROUTINE SCREENINGS are the BEST ways to PREVENT colorectal cancer. Screenings include a fecal occult blood test, colonoscopy and/or a barium enema ‒ all available at AMH. For recommendations for when to begin your routine screenings, contact your AMH health care provider at 877.887.5440.

Prescription Drug Take Back Program
The Antelope County Law Enforcement Center has a prescription drug drop-off box located in the lobby of the office. They are a 24-hour facility, so if people have any prescription drugs to dispose of, they are able to stop by morning, day or night to place them in the drug drop-off box to be properly disposed of. Improper disposal would include flushing them in the toilet or sink or throwing them in the trash. If any questions, please contact the Antelope County Law Enforcement Center.
