Get Screened!

If you are 50 or older please go get screened.

If you are under 50 but experiencing any of the following symptoms, go get screened:

  • a change in bowel habits
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • alternating constipation and diarrhea

  • stools that are thinner than normal

A colonoscopy could save your life!

  1. Laura.... how did it go?

    Thanks for the information. Did you have any of those symptoms? I read where you thought you had hemorrhoids so I am guessing some blood in the stools or something?
