As the second most common type of cancer found in the United States, colorectal cancer is more widespread than many individuals realize. At NYBG Colorectal we have the skill and technology to both diagnose and effectively treat your colon cancer.
The Colon Cancer Screening Process
During your consultation with Dr. Nandra, you’ll learn everything there is to know about the screening process. This will be your chance to ask any questions you may have, as it’s our goal to ensure that you feel completely relaxed and totally comfortable at every step of the way.
Your screening will most likely start with an abdominal exam, a digital examination of your rectum, and then a colonoscopy to most accurately assess the health of your colon and rectum. We’ll also go over your personal and family medical histories, to assess the risk levels present.
Sedation will be used to keep you comfortable during a colonoscopy, during which time your doctor will use a thin scope to examine your colon and rectum. If any polyps or tumors are found, they can actually be removed right then and there.
