We invite you to watch our video about the importance of having a colonoscopy.
Please note that we have moved to our new facility on Marginal Way in Portland. We will be updating our video to feature the new location. In the meantime, the information in the video about colonoscopy screening is important to know!
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!
