Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

March is the month when we highlight the life-saving importance of colorectal cancer screening. Regular screening beginning at age 45 is the key to preventing colorectal cancer, which includes cancers of the colon, rectum, and anus.

Talk to Your Provider About Screening Options:

  • Colonoscopy–a safe, highly accurate, hospital-based outpatient procedure that is considered the “gold standard” for colorectal cancer screening.
  • Cologuard–an at-home test that can detect changes in DNA and also hidden blood in the stool.
  • FIT Card–an at-home test that can detect hidden blood in the stool.

Colorectal cancer screening saves lives. And keep in mind that when it comes to starting a schedule of regular colorectal cancer screenings, 45 is the new 50!

Due to an increasing number of patients seeking care in our Emergency Room, wait times may be longer than you wish.

Our staff continues to work hard to make sure you are seen as quickly as possible.

If you are not experiencing a medical emergency, please consider calling your primary care provider (PCP) to see if a
same day appointment is available.
