Carrera a beneficio del cáncer de colon

Apr 05, 2016 Written by  Redacción LA ESQUINA

Vuelve el 5K “Córrelo, Camínalo y Chequéate eso” de la Coalición de Cáncer Colorrectal de Puerto Rico, el cual se celebrará este próximo domingo, 10 de abril, a las 8:00 a.m. en el parque Luis Muñoz Rivera, en San Juan.

“Este evento ha recibido un apoyo muy especial de parte del público porque son muchas las personas que se identifican con la causa. El cáncer de colon ha impactado a miles de familias puertorriqueñas. Por eso es tan importante levantar una voz de alerta y promover la prevención”, informó Marcia Cruz Correa, presidenta de la Coalición de Cáncer Colorrectal de Puerto Rico.

En Puerto Rico mueren anualmente entre 600 a 700 personas a causa del cáncer de colon. Lo más impactante es que cuando se detecta en etapas tempranas, es curable en el 90% de los casos, lo que significa que las personas no se están realizando sus pruebas rutinarias.

“Es importante que las personas conozcan que existe una prueba sencilla e indolora que conocemos como Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) que consiste en tomar una muestra de excreta, la cual es analizada con miras a identificar la presencia de sangre oculta en las heces. Esta es a su vez, señal de crecimiento anormal de células malignas y la existencia de pólipos precancerosos”, destacó Cruz.

El cáncer de colon suele aparecer sin presentar ningún tipo de síntoma y lamentablemente, en repetidas ocasiones, al momento de ser diagnosticado ya los pacientes tienen la enfermedad en estado avanzado. La mayoría de los pacientes en Puerto Rico cuando van al médico, presentan cáncer de colon en etapas avanzadas, lo que está asociado a una menor tasa de sobrevida. 

Este año, el evento contará con un programa de calentamiento que se estará realizando a las 7:00 a.m. Además, luego de la carrera, se estarán llevando a cabo charlas educativas y varias actividades de entretenimiento.

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
    people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Greetings from Florida! I'm bored to tears at work so I decided to
    browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the knowledge you present here and can't wait to take a look when I get home.

    I'm surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile ..
    I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, great site!
