Don't Take Chances with Colon Cancer
Colorectal cancer (known as colon cancer) is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States among men and women. It is expected to cause about 49,700 deaths during 2015.

The good news? Routine testing starting at age 50 can actually prevent many cases of colorectal cancer, or find it at an early stage. But because many people are not getting tested, only about 4 out of 10 are diagnosed at this early stage when treatment is most likely to be successful.

Colon cancer or polyps may not cause symptoms, especially early on. Don’t wait for symptoms before you get screened. 

Schedule Your Colonoscopy Screening:
Call  PCI General Surgery at (319) 362-5118. We can schedule your screening within two weeks of calling.

Did you know that early colorectal cancer often has no symptoms? That's why getting screened (usually a colonoscopy) is so important. If you’re over 50 years old and have never had one, now is the time to get it done. PCI General Surgery can even schedule you within two weeks of calling.
