Colorectal cancer, also known as colon cancer, is the second leading cause of cancer in the United States; however, if detected early, this cancer can be cured. If you are 50 years of age or older, have a family history of colon cancer or have a history of ulcerative colitis or Crohn's Disease, it is recommended that you are screened for Colorectal Cancer.
The Hematology and Oncology clinic is located at 1611 Foster Street, across the street from the CHRISTUS St. Patrick emergency room. For more information, call the clinic at (337) 491-7598.
