Life-saving colorectal cancer screenings

Colon cancer is one of the most curable forms of cancer. Dr. Narendran uses endoscopic methods to perform colonoscopy, the most thorough procedure for examining the lining of the colon for ulcers, cancer, polyps or other abnormalities. The American Board of Internal Medicine reports that:

• Women are just as likely as men to develop colorectal cancer.

• Colorectal cancer is most common after age 50, but the chances of developing colorectal cancer increase after age 40.

• Relatives of those with colorectal cancer or chronic digestive conditions have a higher risk of developing colorectal cancer.

A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine stated that more than 90% of lives could be saved through early detection of colorectal cancer.
