Colorectal Cancer Prevention
With the recent death of actor Chadwick Boseman, the specter of colorectal cancer has been brought to the forefront of all of our lives. Over the past years the frequency colorectal cancer has been steadily increasing. It has increased at a significant rate in the general population suggesting that there are chemicals in the foods we eat or other factors that we are likely unaware of that are increasing the likelihood of each of us getting colorectal cancer.
This month the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has changed its recommendation policy for screen for colorectal cancer and now suggests that every adult 45 to 75 years of age should be screened for colorectal cancer at least once a year. As we are all about prevention at Advanced Wellness Medical, we feel that all of our patients should have access to a resource for screening with minimal to no charge and stress.
The simplest was to accomplish this is through using Cologuard testing. We are now set up with Cologuard to refer you and make this testing process as easy as possible for all of our patients.
Cologuard May Be Right for You?
If you are 45 and older and at average risk for colon cancer, Cologuard may be right for you. Cologuard is not for everyone. It is not a replacement for diagnostic or surveillance colonoscopy in high-risk individuals.
Cologuard May Not Be Right for You If:
Important Information You Should Know
If you are 45 years of age or older contact our office and ask for information about Colorectal Cancer Screening. We will arrange for a Cologuard kit to be sent directly to you and you can do the testing in the comfort of your own home or office. You will then mail the kit to the Cologuard company and when we get the results we will contact you via phone or if you like email to set up a telemed visit to discuss the results with you in private.
Knowing you do not have colorectal cancer can take a subconscious load off of your mind and free you to live a happier and healthier life.
