What is colorectal cancer?

It is a cancer that starts in the colon or rectum. Cancer starts when cells in the body grow out of control. Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers found in both men and women in the United States.

What are some of the symptoms?

  • Blood in your stool or sudden weight loss. 
  • Changes in the color or shape of your stool.
  • Cramping or discomfort in your abdomen.
  • Constipation or diarrhea that won’t go away. 

How can I lower my risk?

  • Get tested – Talk to your provider about the best options for you.
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables. 
  • Eat less red meats and processed foods. 
  • Avoid tobacco and alcohol. 
  • Regularly exercise. 

Do I need to talk with my clinician about colorectal cancer?

YES! Screening tests offer the best chance to prevent or find colorectal cancer early, when most people do not have symptoms. There are a few different screening options, even one you can do at home. Talk to your clinician about which one is best for you! Give us a call at (530) 246-5710 or visit our online patient portal to make an appointment today.
