Colon Cancer Screening – Are You At Risk?

Preventable. Treatable. Beatable.

Each year more than 140,000 people are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, often referred to as colon cancer, in the U.S. and over 50,000 people die from it annually. The disease, however, is largely preventable with regular screening and is treatable with early detection.

If you are over 50, considered a high risk and/or have a family history of colorectal cancer, please call to speak with our qualified office staff so that we can assist you with coordinating your care.

Colon cancer is easily detectable through a procedure called Colonoscopy, in which a small colonoscope is passed through the rectum. If detected early before it has a chance to spread, colon cancer can be cured. The specialists at Maple Grove Surgical Specialists offer endoscopic examinations such as colonoscopies for colon cancer screening.
