PREVENTION

Colon cancer claims the most lives after lung cancer.  80% of cases can be prevented if detected early.

You should undergo colonoscopy if you notice any of the following signs or symptoms:
  • blood in the stool
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • chronic fatigue,
  • weight loss

Esophageal-gastric cancer is a silent disease with few early signs.

You should undergo gastroscopy if you notice any of the following:
  • reflux
  • swallowing difficulty
  • retrosternal pain
  • voice changes
  • weight loss or loss of appetite.

The only way to prevent cancer is to detect it early.
