Colon and Rectal Surgeons are experts in performing colorectal cancer screenings. Your primary care physician may refer you to a Colon and Rectal Surgeon for a screening if you are age 50+ or have other potential risk factors. Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in America for men and women. But you can change that, because screening prevents 70-80 percent of colorectal cancers. In fact, this is one of the most preventable cancers. Colorectal cancer often shows no symptoms until it’s at an advanced stage. Screening is essential. Talk to your doctor or call a Mercy Health Colon and Rectal Surgeon to learn more about colorectal cancer screening. It’s a conversation that could save your life.
