Talking to your patients

Here are a few talking points you can use when speaking to patients about colorectal cancer screening:

  • Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly form of cancer, but it doesn’t have to be.
  • Screening can prevent the cancer or catch it early when it’s highly treatable.
  • Most insurance plans cover 100% of the cost of screening with no co-pays or deductibles. Even without insurance, there are low cost, reliable options. Let’s talk about the one that is right for you.
  • Get screened!
  • Then, talk about your experience and encourage other people you know to be screened too.

 

Your Stories

When two of our good friends passed away from colorectal cancer, my husband and I decided it was time to be screened. We realize now that there was no reason to put it off. It’s quick and easy, and we’ll be screened again as soon as it’s time. The best part of screening is knowing that we’ve done our job in preventing the cancer.
