Colorectal Cancer Screening
Colorectal cancer kills thousands of Americans each year and is the third leading cancer killer in the United States. In 2002 there were an estimated 56,603 deaths from colorectal cancer alone. Americans spend billions of dollars a year on treatment for colorectal cancer, which is the second most expensive cancer to treat after prostate cancer.
Through the Division’s outpatient services, screening is performed routinely to patients with indications for colorectal cancer.
Early detection and regular screenings are important in successfully treating any type of cancer. Call the Division of Gastroenterology/Endoscopy Unit for more information: (718) 963-7617.
