We are stepping up the fight against colorectal cancer in the Texas Panhandle. Getting screened using our convenient, at-home testing method, Fecal Immunochemical Test or F.I.T. for colorectal cancer at appropriate intervals gives your physician the best chance to catch cancer in its early stages. Regular screening, knowing the facts about colorectal cancer and properly moving forward with treatment increase the hope of a longer, healthier life.
Getting screened for colorectal cancer can and does save the lives of men and women. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States. One of the most common misconceptions is that the disease affects only men. Colorectal cancer affects everyone, which means screening is just as important for women. We are providing education and clinical services to the Texas Panhandle in hopes of preventing colorectal cancer deaths and ultimately improving quality of life by catching the illness in its early stages. Call today for your appointment. It’s completely free!
