Sacramento Bee columnist Marcos Breton said he has been a "broken record" during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month about the need for preventive screening in hopes of "demystifying a process some avoid because it frightens them." He said he has been getting voice messages and e-mails from people about their own experiences or people they know who got colon cancer. Breton said even though he does not have any symptoms, he scheduled himself for a colonoscopy this week.
