Colon Cancer Screenings at NYBG Colorectal

While most patients might not realize it, colorectal cancers are among the most common in the United States, and most individuals have a one in 20 chance of developing these issues over the course of their lifetime. Colon cancer impacts the lower portion of your large intestines, which is known as the colon, as well as the rectum (which composes the last several inches of the colon). Colon cancer often does not present any noticeable symptoms until it has reached a fairly advanced stage, which is why it’s best to be as proactive as possible when screening for this particular disease. To learn more about our colonoscopy treatment in NYC and the benefits it can bring you, simply reach out and set up your consultation today. A helpful member of the NYBG Colorectal team will be standing by to set up your appointment and help you get started on your road to total health.

When to Consider A Colonoscopy

The colonoscopy is one of the most effective methods by which a doctor can check for cancerous polyps, tumors, and other irregularities that can lead to colon cancer or other serious colorectal issues. When performed under the care of an experienced doctor, colonoscopy is a very safe procedure.

Most men are recommended to start undergoing regular colon cancer screenings starting at the age of 50. If you have a history of cancer in your family or are predisposed to this type of condition for some other reason, it may be smart to begin screenings early. When caught early, colon cancer has very favorable outcomes and excellent treatment results.

The Colonoscopy Procedure

This procedure is relatively quick and easy and will be performed right in our New York office. You will need to be sedated for your total comfort during the procedure, but there is not much in the way of a recovery period once the screening is over. You’ll feel a bit groggy as the sedation wears off, and will need a friend to drive you home from our office, but this will be the extent of any “downtime.”

Dr. Nandra or an experienced member of our surgical staff will use a lighted scope to examine your colon and rectum carefully, looking for any indications that colon cancer may be present. This is also an effective way to check for other irregularities that can point to the presence of an issue such as diverticulosis. The procedure typically takes about 45 minutes to complete, and you’ll be given preparation instructions the night before.
