March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about one of the most common yet preventable forms of cancer. At Newtown Medical Centre, we are committed to not only providing top-notch preventative medical services but also to ensuring that you understand your health every step of the way. We see every patient as an individual with unique needs and offer you personalized care just for you.

Colorectal cancer often develops from precancerous polyps in the colon or rectum and can be detected early through regular screenings. Our team of experts is here to guide you through the screening process, helping you understand the importance of early detection and the available options. We are constantly advocating for prevention which is less costly than managing the cancer if undetected early.

 A recommended procedure carried out at NMC is the CT colonoscopy, also known as virtual colonoscopy. It is a non-invasive medical procedure that uses computed tomography (CT) scans to create detailed images of the colon and rectum. These images are used to detect polyps, tumors, or other abnormalities in the colon. Unlike traditional colonoscopy, which uses a flexible tube inserted into the colon, CT colonoscopy does not require sedation or insertion of a tube into the colon. It is often used as a screening tool for colorectal cancer.

At Newtown Medical Centre our brand promise is simple yet powerful: we help you understand your health every step of the way. This means that we are not just a healthcare provider; we are your partners in health, dedicated to empowering you with the knowledge and resources you need to make informed decisions about your health.

Prevention is key when it comes to colorectal cancer, and our preventative medical services are designed to help you stay one step ahead of this disease. From regular screenings to lifestyle recommendations, we are here to support you in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and reducing your risk of developing colorectal cancer.

This Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, take the first step towards understanding your health by scheduling a screening with us. Together, we can work towards a future where colorectal cancer is a thing of the past.
