Colon Cancer Mortality Doubles if You Skip Your Colonoscopy
Why is colonoscopy known as the gold standard for colon cancer prevention? It is because colonoscopy can detect and prevent colon cancer in a single test.
The gastroenterologists and staff at MidAtlantic Endoscopy are dedicated to providing quality, affordable care to the greater Lancaster community in our quest to lower colon cancer rates and treat an array of digestive diseases, including Crohn’s Disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
