Covenant Health to Conduct Free Colon Screenings for Those Who Qualify in August |  KLBK |  KAMC

Colorectal screening tests can detect tiny polyps which are abnormal growths in both the rectum and colon. Colon cancer is one of the leading preventable cancers by early detection. Although diagnosis is possible at an early stage, many people delay seeking medical care because they may be embarrassed, fearful, or have limited financial resources. Doctors recommend those over the age of 45 or those with a family history of colon cancer have their colons checked regularly. Recently the American Cancer Society changed the age of recommended screening from 50 to 45-years-old. Colon cancer risk increases at age 50.

In August, Covenant Health will host their 7th Annual Free Colonoscopy Clinic. LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) — The following is a news release from the Covenant Health:
