Colorectal Cancer

We understand the thought of a colonoscopy can be embarrassing. But it shouldn’t be. Chesapeake Regional's team of gastroenterologists has earned national recognition in gastroenterology year after year. And research shows that early detection of cancer through colonoscopy results in a 90 percent recovery rate. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones.

Each year, cancer of the colon or rectum kills more Americans than any other cancer except lung cancer. Portsmouth, Chesterfield, and Western Tidewater had the highest mortality rates from colorectal cancer among the 35 health districts [in Virginia]. But the outlook is bright. Experts are discovering more ways to lower your risk of dying from this cancer that attacks the digestive system.
