Two Lifesaving Tests for Women: Reasons to Get Screened Today

When it comes to cancer, no news is the best kind of news. But there is good news. Catching cancer early often means a better chance of survival. For example, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is almost 100 percent when it’s caught at stage 0 or 1.

Colorectal polyps can be harmless clumps of cells in your colon. But they can also develop into colon cancer. Polyps that are found early can be removed before they develop into cancers or when they are easier to treat.

There are over 1 million survivors of colorectal cancer in the United States. And over 3.6 million breast cancer survivors. What they may have in common is that they made time to get tested. Check out our video about screenings. And then call to make an appointment for your mammogram or colonoscopy today.
