Colorectal Cancer Awareness Ribbon

Colorectal Cancer Awareness

In 2014, we aim to raise awareness more than ever before. On a yearly basis, over 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, with a 30% mortality rate. With colorectal screening, we can lower that percentage by:

  • Detecting precancerous polyps and eliminating them before they turn into cancer
  • Detecting colorectal cancer during its early stages, allowing for swift diagnosis and effective treatment

If you are over 50, we urge you to set an appointment for a colorectal screening. In many cases, it can save a life. If you are uncertain whether you need a colorectal screening, please give us a call and we will answer any questions you have.
