NYBG Colorectal: A Talented Team You Can Trust

Cancer that occurs in the large intestine portion of your digestive tract—which is also known as your colon—is often referred to as a “silent” disease, given that it does not typically present symptoms until it has become advanced and quite serious. The good news is that when colon cancer is caught early enough, it can be treated with a success rate of 80% or higher. If you suspect that you may be suffering from colon cancer, or have a history of this disease in your family, we recommend getting screened early and often. To learn more about how NYBG Colorectal can help you diagnose and address colon cancer, simply reach out to our New York office and set up your consultation today.

Do I Have Colon Cancer?

As mentioned, many of colon cancer’s telltale symptoms don’t become noticeable until the disease is relatively advanced. It’s for this reason that we recommend getting screened on a regular basis, especially if you are over the age of 50. If you have a family history of cancer (any kind), it’s recommended that you begin getting screened at an earlier age. Some of the symptoms that can indicate the presence of colon cancer include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • A noticeable change in bowel movement habits
  • Changing bowel consistency
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Persistent pain or discomfort
  • A feeling of fullness in the bowels
  • Regular camping
  • Constant gas

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.
