While Nebraska wants to always be in the top ten nationally for sports, we don’t want to be anywhere near that for cancer. For colon cancer, we barely missed the top ten in the latest incidence numbers. We were number 11. In the Big 12 Conference, only Iowa ranked higher. When it comes to colon cancer, you should play the percentages. If colon cancer is detected early, it is 90% curable. That’s a great percentage to play by.
