Colon Cancer Awareness Month


Colon Cancer Awareness Month is a great time to get your colonoscopy scheduled.  Did you know experts suggest regular screenings, beginning at age 45, is the key to preventing colorectal cancer (cancer of the rectum and colon).*
If you’re 45 to 75 years old, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. If you’re younger than 45 and think you may be at high risk of getting colorectal cancer, or if you’re older than 75, talk to your doctor about screening.*
Yankton Medical Clinic has three surgeons on staff that regularly perform colonoscopies in our ASC (Ambulatory Surgical Center). We’ve tried to make the whole process as easy as possible! See your doctor about screening, schedule with a surgeon and have your colonoscopy, all under our one roof!
Colorectal polyps and colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at first. That is why getting screened regularly for colorectal cancer is so important.*
