Orlando, FL, is a hub for vacations and sunshine, as well as a beautiful locale that many call home. But nothing stops the enjoyment of life in Orlando faster than a cancer diagnosis. If you notice the symptoms of colon cancer, you need to get checked out immediately. At Gastro Health, we offer colon cancer testing and a fast-track colonoscopy option so you can get identify any issues right away.

Should You Get Screened?

A colon cancer screening is a good idea for anyone over the age of 45, but you might need to get tested long before that if you are showing symptoms of colon cancer or you have a family history of the disease. The symptoms of colon cancer can be easily attributed to other problems, which makes it all the more important to contact us and schedule your colonoscopy.

You should see a doctor if any of the following symptoms consistently appear:

  • A change in stool consistency
  • A feeling that the bowel doesn't completely empty
  • Blood in the stool or rectal bleeding
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Weight loss that can't be explained

The symptoms of colon cancer don't typically show up until after the disease has progressed. If you are worried about any symptoms, get tested by our caring team of physicians at Gastro Health.
