A SCREENING FOR COLORECTAL CANCER COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!
Ready for an important fact? Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men AND women in the United States. In fact, the American Cancer Society estimates that there will be over 100,000 new cases of colon cancer developing in the United States in 2021.
The good news is that the rate of diagnosis is dropping each year! This is largely due to the advancement of colorectal screening technology. Franklin Foundation Hospital and General Surgeon Dr. Kennan Buechter offer patients a variety of screening options, including colonoscopies, and continue to encourage patients over 50 to have regular screenings.
Take the time to take care of yourself! For more information or to schedule an appointment with
