Colon Cancer Symptoms

Colon and rectal cancers combined are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. In 2016 alone, an estimated 134,490 cases in this country are expected to be diagnosed.

Why Start With Primary Care For Colon Cancer?

Most colon and rectal cancers show no symptoms for years before detection. While a colonoscopy should be performed starting at age 50, testing for colon cancer should also be performed as part of an annual physical examination. This requires a rectal exam and a chemical test for occult (invisible) blood in the stool. Piedmont Primary Care doctors can perform these tests!

Piedmont offers:

  • Same Day appointments
  • 170+ primary care physicians (both family and internal medicine physicians)
