Health Tip and Practice Info
Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
Colorectal cancer begins in the digestive system, also called the GI (GastroIntestinal) system, where food is processed. It begins with a growth that is not yet cancerous.
Various kinds of tests are available to help determine if a growth has begun to form. If a test finds a growth, the earlier it is removed, the better the chance of preventing further complications.
The chances of having colorectal cancer go up after age 50. More than 9 out of 10 people with colorectal cancer are older than 50.
Ask your High Mountain Health doctor about the types of tests that are available and when the best time for you to consider taking them would be.
