Colorectal Cancer Screening (Patients 50-75)
Colorectal cancer is cancer that begins in the colon or the rectum. It is the third most common cancer among both men and women in the United States, and it occurs most often in people over the age of 50. Your Gastroenterologist will encourage you to have your routine colorectal cancer screening.
Unhealthy Alcohol Use Screening (Patients 18 and older)
Alcohol is the most commonly used drug in the United States and a leading cause of illness and death. Nearly 3 out of 10 American adults engage in risky alcohol consumption, ranging from occasional binge drinking to daily heavy drinking. Patients 18 and older are screened every two years for unhealthy alcohol use. Every two years your Gastroenterologist will ask you about alcohol use.
