Colon Cancer Awareness Month
The life you save may be your own.
It’s hard to talk about colonoscopies, but harder still to face a diagnosis of colon cancer––the second leading cause of cancer deaths.
A colonoscopy can prevent colon cancer, reducing the risk of the disease by up to 90%.
If you’re over 50 and have never had a colonoscopy, the time is now. Colonoscopies are covered by Medicare and most health insurance plans.
Protect yourself against colon cancer. Call your primary care physician today to schedule your colonoscopy with a Portland Gastroenterology Center gastroenterologist.

Watch our video and learn more about the importance of having a colonoscopy.
Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths. But early detection through colonoscopy can reduce your risk of developing the disease by 90%.
Maybe you’re just unsure because you feel healthy. Maybe you’ve lost sight of the fact that colonoscopy protects even healthy people against the serious risk of colorectal cancer. Or, maybe, convincing a loved one of the importance of good colon health is a challenge.
Here at Portland Gastroenterology, our gastroenterologists are available to offer colonoscopies in the comfort of our state-of-the-art Endoscopy Center.
After you schedule your exam, go back to your to-do list and proudly check off this important step in protecting your health. With that out of the way, what’s next on your list? A cooking class? A new fishing rod? Guitar lessons? Good health opens many doors!
