Thank you for your interest in North Texas Endoscopy Centers’ Annual Free Screening Day. With our partners at Digestive Health Associates of Texas, we hope to provide a potentially life-saving colonoscopy to 50 North Texans on April 14, 2018.
Why Get Screened?
Colon cancer is the third leading cancer in the United States for both men and women, and we are committed to doing our part to help raise awareness and educate our neighbors in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex.
Each year, about 150,000 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and about 50,000 people will die from the disease, according to the American Cancer Society. Approximately 80 percent of colon cancer cases have no prior family history and most have no symptoms, which is why it’s so important to have a screening colonoscopy once you’ve reached the recommended age.
