Cancer Screening

Posted Friday, March 16, 2007

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Preventing cancer - it can be as simple as taking a test no one wants to take, and as controversial as the sex lives of teenaged girls. Cervical cancer kills 4,000 American women each year. The disease is often caused by a sexually transmitted virus. Yet a vaccine that fights the virus is causing a stir. We'll talk about the controversy and ask why so few people get screened for an even bigger killer: colon cancer. Join Regina Brett Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas.




HPV Vaccine - Melanie Elsey, Ohio Roundtable legislative director; Terry Allen, Cuyahoga County Health Commissioner; Dr. Rick Kellerman, president, American Academy of Family Physicians. Colon Cancer - Mayor Jim Smith, Avon; Dr. Gregory Cooper, UH gastroenterologist.
