Common methods for detecting colorectal diseases include rectal exams, lab tests, and colonoscopies. Serious concerns such as colon cancer, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis are best diagnosed and treated early for optimal success.
Since these conditions range in severity from mild to life-threatening, it’s important to seek a diagnosis as soon as symptoms develop. Visit your doctor if you are approaching middle age, have a family history of colorectal disease, or experiencing any of the following symptoms:
• Chronic Weakness or Fatigue
• Weight Loss
• Abdominal Discomfort or Pressure
• Bloody Stools/ Anemia
Not all colorectal issues will require surgery and the guidance of your general physician or gastroenterologist can be crucial. After determining the extent of your condition and appropriate treatment, they will direct you to visit with Dr. Fan regarding potential surgical intervention.
