Get Your Colonoscopy

Are you over 50? Schedule a lifesaving colonoscopy

Screening for colorectal cancer is a proven lifesaver. A colonoscopy can actually prevent cancer since it can lead to the detection and removal of polyps, some of which may progress to cancer.

The American Cancer Society expects more than 50,000 people to die of the disease this year, yet only 60 percent of those who should have a colonoscopy have had one. Doctors recommend a colonoscopy for people over 50 years old.

Please contact Lake Russell Specialty Healthcare Services at 706-213-2580 or your primary care provider to take action.
