Colorectal Cancer

Last year alone, more than 150,000 new cases of colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, were reported in the U.S. But many of those cases could have been treated successfully with an earlier diagnosis. All it takes is a screening.

Detectable, preventable, curable cancer. 

Each year, more than 150,000 new cases of colorectal cancer, also known as colon cancer, are reported in the U.S. But many of those cases could have been treated successfully with an earlier diagnosis. Which is why at INTEGRIS Health we’re an advocate for the simple, painless screening known as a colonoscopy.

Colon cancer can take many years to develop, so early detection is key to stopping it in its tracks. Starting at age 45, you should schedule your first colonoscopy. And if you are of African American decent or have certain hereditary conditions, you may need to start much sooner.  

We make it easy to schedule that screening at INTEGRIS Health, no matter what age you need to start. Either talk to your primary care physician for a referral or you make an appointment with any of our gastroenterologists directly. Because early detection makes all the difference when it comes to colon cancer.
