Digestive Care and Treatment

Depending on your condition, your doctor may recommend dietary and lifestyle changes or medications to help improve your digestive symptoms and discomfort. If your symptoms don’t get better, you and your doctor may choose an endoscopic procedure or surgery to treat your condition.

Colorectal Cancer Screenings

Start regular screenings for colorectal cancer after you turn 50. You may need screenings earlier if you have inflammatory bowel disease, or if you or a close relative have had colorectal polyps or colorectal cancer. Find precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) before they turn into cancer with screening tests such as a colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy.
