Colorectal cancer services
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the U.S. for women and men. This type of cancer occurs in the large intestines (colon) or rectum. These types of tumors typically start as small polyps that develop into cancer. Because colon cancer doesn't usually have symptoms in its early stages, colonoscopies can be crucial in identifying any cancerous growths.
During a colonoscopy, your doctor can identify any polyps or suspicious tissue in your colon. If any abnormalities are found, your doctor will send samples to the laboratory to determine if it is benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Our gastroenterologists use the latest in technology to provide thorough colonoscopy services.
Additional colon cancer screening tests
In addition to colonoscopies, we also provide the following tests to help identify colorectal cancer:
- Biopsy–This is when a tissue sample is removed from your colon and sent for analysis.
- Digital rectal exam–This test can identify almost half of colon cancers and can usually be completed by a primary care doctor.
- Fecal occult blood test–This is a lab test used to look for blood in your stool.
- Stool DNA test–A lab test used to look for DNA changes in cells. It can also look for blood in your stool. This test can usually be ordered by your primary physician.
- Virtual colonoscopy–This is a computerized tomography (CT) scan used to check for colon polyps.
- X-ray of the large intestine or barium enema–This is a picture of your colon and can help identify polyps.
As part of our commitment to providing excellence in cancer care, we offer patient navigation services for individuals undergoing cancer treatment.
