Cancer of the colon is the second leading cause of cancer-related death for men and women in Canada.
Cancer screening saves lives and early detection is the first step in the treatment of cancer. That’s where we come in. We provide the colonoscopy and gastroscopy procedures that detect gastrointestinal tract diseases including cancer.
Colon cancer is cancer of the large intestine (colon), the lower part of your digestive system. Rectal cancer is cancer of the last several inches of the colon. Together, they’re often referred to as colorectal cancers.
Most cases of colon cancer begin as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called adenomatous polyps. Over time some of these polyps become colon cancers.
Polyps may be small and produce few, if any, symptoms. For this reason, doctors recommend regular screening tests to help prevent colon cancer by identifying polyps before they become colon cancer.
Colon cancer is best detected by colonoscopy and occasionally it can be found by doing tests for blood in your stool. Often, by the time symptoms develop, it is in an advanced stage.
Colon cancer is treated by surgery and depending on the stage, chemo and/or radiation therapy.
Gastroscopies are performed to detect reflux, ulcers, celiac disease, stomach/esophageal cancers and other diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
We provide the following screening procedures:
