EARLY DETECTION IS CRUCIAL

Colon and rectal cancer is the only major cancer that is potentially preventable with adequate screening.  A simple, safe and painless exam can prevent most colon cancers.  A simple test can possibly detect colorectal cancer before it spreads and can even help prevent it.  The test is called a screening colonoscopy, and it could save your life.

Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer in the United States and also one of the deadliest.  Each year colon and rectal cancer kills about as many Americans as died in the Vietnam War.  One of the most powerful weapons in preventing colorectal cancer is regular colorectal cancer screening.

IF YOU ARE AGE 50 SCHEDULE A SCREENING

Discussing colorectal problems is often difficult and embarrassing.  Don't let yourself be embarrassed to death.   Get screened for colon and rectal cancer.  Ask your doctor about getting screened for colon and rectal cancer today.
