Signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer are usually only experienced in an advanced stage, which makes early screening imperative.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
The Dr-Pain Provider Network announced today the unveiling of their latest expansion - this time it’s a dive into preventative medicine. With the launch of GetBehindScreening.com, the new site has a 2 pronged approach: creating awareness and taking action. As the name says, "Get Behind Screening" encourages adults to take action through timely screenings, known as Colonoscopies.
A large component supporting this movement is to create awareness - that is, on Colon Cancer, as Dallas area residents are encouraged to join the movement on colon health, 'Join the Bowel Movement' - being the catchy means to convey the importance of screening to the public.
Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly cancer for both men and women. In effort to overturn statistical evidence and prevent progression of the disease, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends routine colorectal cancer screening beginning at age 50.
During an interview on the topic of colorectal cancer detection with medical professionals in the Dallas area, local Dallas nurse Taylor Barke concurred, "Signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer are usually only experienced in an advanced stage, which makes early screening imperative."
Outreach interventions delivered amongst Texas’ Best Gastroenterologists of TXBestMD.com, within the Dr-Pain.com Best Pain Doctor Directory, highlight the vital significance of colorectal cancer awareness by encouraging compliance with routine colonoscopies. In fact, since the introduction of colonoscopy guidelines in 2000, National Institutes of Health’s recommended guidelines have consistently decreased the prevalence of colorectal cancer in the United States.
A colonoscopy examines the lining of the lower intestinal tract, which includes the colon and large intestine. When used in the prevention of colorectal cancer, a colonoscopy can detect and remove polyps and other potentially precancerous growths before they progress to cancer. "Colonoscopies play an important role in perpetuating longevity, improving quality of life, and decreasing health care costs through early detection of colon cancer," concluded Dr. Mark Laning. "The platform of in-network providers allow the public to choose the physician they feel is best suited for their medical condition. The Dr-Pain.com Directory displays photos and brief biographies on each physician allowing patients to have the choice when it comes to their healthcare provider. Our gastrointestinal specialists are amongst the top rated physicians in the state of Texas".
