Colorectal Cancer Awareness: Patient Testimonial
March is Colorectal Cancer Month! Screening for colorectal cancer saves lives. If you’re 50 or older, talk with your doctor about which test is best for you.
“I was afraid to get a colonoscopy, then finally agreed to do the non-invasive Cologuard test at home. The results were positive. I had a colonoscopy and polyps were removed. One polyp was cancerous. As a result, eighteen inches of my colon was surgically removed. Following the surgery, the pathology came back and everything was good. My doctor told me that I was cured.”
“I normally go for annual wellness visits and yearly screenings. The colonoscopy was my hold out. I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I was scared, but it saved my life. It really did. I believe that.”
