Colon cancer symptoms and screenings

Colon cancer can produce a range of symptoms, but the most common ones include:

  • Bleeding from the rectum
  • Blood in the stool
  • Frequent vomiting
  • Lasting constipation or diarrhea
  • Persistent abdominal pain or bloating
  • Unexplained weight loss

Many people may show no symptoms at all, which is why colonoscopies are a vital part of your continued health.Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, but it can be treated or even prevented through regular screenings.

Our doctors are committed to helping prevent colorectal cancer, which is why we offer colonoscopies provided by certified GI specialists. Patients should schedule regular colon screenings starting at age 45. Early detection is key when it comes to preventing colon cancer.

Scheduling a colonoscopy does not require a referral. To make an appointment for a colonoscopy, please call (254) 618-1020.

Noninvasive GI screenings

Our GI doctors use minimally invasive, ingestible devices to help gather information about your gastrointestinal condition and the best way to treat it. The PillCam is an innovative capsule the size of a daily multivitamin pill that patients ingest. The capsule contains a tiny camera and light, and it takes high-resolution pictures as it travels through the GI tract. The images taken allow your physician to evaluate your GI condition and determine a personalized course of treatment.

There is no sedation necessary for this innovative, noninvasive procedure. Call us to learn more about PillCam diagnostics.
