Preventable, treatable and beatable
Colorectal cancer -- cancer that develops in the colon or rectum -- is the third most common cancer affecting men and women in the United States. But colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable! These cancers often begin as a growth of tissue, or polyp, in the lower part of the digestive or gastrointestinal system. Over many years these polyps can slowly change into cancer. Screening makes it possible to find these polyps and remove them before they become cancerous.
The doctors and staff at Legacy Health provide comprehensive, coordinated and expert care for patients with colon, rectal and anal cancers. Our full range of care includes screening, diagnosis, treatment, support and survivorship services.
