Colon Cancer is the 3rd Most Common Cancer in Men & Women Today
The age for Colon Cancer Has Been Reduced from 50 to 45, and Preventive Detection Can Save Your Life
Facts About Colon Cancer
According to the American Cancer Association, colon cancer screening should begin at age 45 for most adults. However, if you have a family history of colon cancer or other risk factors, screening should begin earlier. Risk factors include a history of inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, smoking, and a sedentary lifestyle.
How Virtual Imaging, Inc. Can Help
At Virtual Imaging, Inc., we offer state-of-the-art virtual colonography scans that can detect colon cancer at an early stage. Our team is dedicated to providing the highest level of care to our clients. We are committed to helping you maintain your health and prevent colon cancer.
Virtual colonography scans use advanced imaging technology to create detailed images of the colon. These scans are non-invasive and do not require sedation or a hospital stay. They are also quick, usually taking less than 30 minutes.
Early detection is crucial in the fight against colon cancer. When colon cancer is detected at an early stage, the five-year survival rate is around 90 percent. However, when colon cancer is not detected until it has spread to other parts of the body, the five-year survival rate drops to around 14 percent.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Schedule a consultation with Virtual Imaging, Inc. today to discuss our imaging services and how we can help you prevent colon cancer. Visit our website or call us at 770-730-0119 to learn more. We’re here to help you stay healthy and live your best life.
Similarly, abdominal aortic aneurysms and thoracic aortic aneurysms are life-threatening conditions that can be detected through our low-dose CT scans. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 15,000 people die each year in the United States from an aortic aneurysm rupture. However, the risk of rupture can be significantly reduced with early detection and timely intervention.
Abdominal aortic aneurysms occur when the wall of the aorta, the main blood vessel in the abdomen, weakens and bulges outward. Thoracic aortic aneurysms occur when the same happens in the chest area. While many aneurysms may not show any symptoms, some people may experience sudden and severe pain in the chest, back, or abdomen.
Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA) are serious medical conditions that can have life-threatening consequences if left untreated. The rupture of an aneurysm is a medical emergency, and immediate treatment is necessary to prevent serious complications or death.
It is important to note that aneurysms may not cause any symptoms until they rupture, which is why prophylactic screening with low-dose CT virtual scans can be a valuable tool in detecting these conditions at an early stage. At Virtual Imaging, we offer comprehensive imaging solutions to detect aneurysms and other conditions before they cause serious harm. Contact us at 770-730-0119 to schedule your low-dose CT scan and take control of your health.
Common symptoms of kidney cancer include blood in the urine (hematuria), which may appear as pink, red, or dark-colored urine. Additionally, individuals may experience persistent pain in the back or side, below the ribs. This pain can range from a dull ache to sharp discomfort. Other possible signs include a palpable lump or mass in the abdomen, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, and intermittent fevers. It is important to note that these symptoms may also be indicative of other health conditions.
Detecting kidney cancer early can significantly impact treatment options and overall prognosis. According to the American Cancer Society, the five-year survival rate for individuals diagnosed with localized kidney cancer (confined to the kidney) is approximately 92%. This emphasizes that regular screenings, such as low-dose CT scans, can aid in identifying kidney cancer at its early stages when the chances of successful treatment and recovery are the highest.
At Virtual Imaging, we are committed to providing state-of-the-art imaging solutions that facilitate early detection of kidney cancer. Our experienced team and advanced technology can help identify potential abnormalities.
