Stress-Free Colon Cancer Screening Program
When you catch it early, colon cancer is one of the most treatable forms of cancer. But here's the thing -- you have to get screened!
A colonoscopy screening is one of the few screening methods that can effectively identify and eliminate pre-cancer. The Stress-Free Colon Cancer Screening program at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Medford makes getting screened as easy as possible.
• We have options to maximize your comfort, and can even customize your prep.
• You can schedule your screening for the day that's best for you.
• Your patient navigator makes all the arrangements and answers any questions or concerns.
• And you'll have your results in no time, usually within two business days.
