Schedule Your Colonoscopy Today!
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosis in the U.S. and usually starts as a benign tumor, or polyp, that mutates and progresses over time. This is where screening comes in: Rutherford’s Best Doctors has 8 gastroenterology and colorectal surgery specialists that can identify and remove polyps while they are still precancerous, or find cancerous tumors while they are still treatable. Most of the time, when patients get regular colonoscopies, specialists can catch any cancers when they are still very, very treatable — and colorectal cancer can be a horrible disease when left untreated.
