Description

Robert enjoying boating"I never would have found it early if I hadn't been screened," said Robert, a survivor of colorectal cancer. 

Since Robert's dad got colorectal cancer at age 45, when Robert went for his annual checkup, he asked his own doctor about getting screened. He got a screening test called a colonoscopy, a test that can show the whole colon and the best kind of test for Robert because of his family cancer history. The colonoscopy showed he had cancer.

"People tell me that they are scared to get screened, but I think it's scarier if you have a tumor that the doctor can't remove," Robert said. "If I hadn't been screened, I wouldn't have been able to see my son go off to college, or enjoy this next chapter of my life with my wife and family." 

FREE LUNCH AND LEARN

Dr. Terrence Coleman, a Harvard Graduate, will be on hand to describe the different types of colorectal screening tests. He will also be available for questions on colonoscopy testing. Dr. Coleman is certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. He is a member of the hospital staff and holds his GI clinic on Wednesday's.
