Digestive Diseases We Treat

Preventive Screenings: Colonoscopy

Colorectal cancer, the third most common cancer in the United States, often grows without symptoms. Regular screening, such as colonoscopies, is crucial for early detection and can even prevent colon cancer.

When to Start Screening

Screening for colon cancer should begin at age 50 for those with no specific risk factors other than age. Individuals with a family history of cancer or conditions like inflammatory bowel disease should consult with their doctor about earlier screenings.

Screening options recommended by the American Cancer Society include:

Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years

Colonoscopy every 10 years

Faecal occult blood test (FOBT) annually

Stool DNA test (sDNA)

Positive results from these tests typically lead to a follow-up colonoscopy for further investigation.

Diagnosis and Treatment for Gastric Ulcers

In addition to colon cancer screenings, we offer specialised care for gastric ulcers, including gastric ulcer diagnosis and peptic ulcer disease treatments. Our team is committed to providing effective solutions for these conditions, ensuring patient comfort and health.
