Colon Cancer Prevention

According to the American Cancer Society, it is estimated that approximately 150,000 new cases of colon cancer were detected in the U.S. last year and over 50,000 Americans died from the condition. Approximately one American life is lost to colon cancer every ten minutes. Most cases are preventable.

Horizon specialists perform a painless life-saving test called a colonoscopy to detect precancerous lesions. Patients, age 50 or older, strongly recommended to have this test. (younger if you are Afro-American or at high risk).  Please call our office to schedule a consultation with one of our gastroenterologist.
