Did you know we live in the “Colorectal Cancer Belt”??
As you can see on the map to the left, we live in one of the areas where the incidence of colorectal cancer is higher than in other parts of the country. If you are over the age of 50, you should have regular colorectal screenings.
Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths
in the United States.
There are several different methods available to screen for colorectal cancer, including colonoscopy and fecal immunochemical testing (FIT), which checks a stool sample for the presence of blood.
We can provide you with FIT testing materials or provide a referral for a colonoscopy. Talk to your provider or nurse TODAY about colorectal cancer screening! Don’t be one of these statistics.
