It's important for those over 50 years old, and
those otherwise at risk, to get screened early for colon cancer. Colon cancer is one of the leading
causes of death in the United States. However, it is also preventable,
treatable and beatable through screening.
During endoscopic screening procedures, doctors insert tubes through the
mouth or rectum to examine and treat problems of the digestive tract,
with minimized impact on surrounding tissues.
Physicians see patients with a wide variety of problems and symptoms including,
but not limited to:
- Acid reflux
- Stuck food
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD) and diseases of the liver pancreas, and intestines
There are several
screening options when it comes to preventing colon cancer. Please discuss which one is
right for you with your BCH provider.
To make an appointment with a BCH primary care provider to talk about getting
screened for colon cancer, please call BCH Patient Scheduling at 303-415-4015.
