One in three adults in the U.S, and about 40% of HealthPoint patients are not up-to-date with recommended colon cancer screening. Perhaps this frightful fact is because many people don't know that colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths and rarely has symptoms.
But don't be spooked! Just like the flu, colon cancer can be prevented. And that's not the only good news - HealthPoint offers flu shots and, for patients age 50-75, a take-home, no-cost colon cancer screening test.
This fall, protect yourself from the flu and from colon cancer too - call and make an appointment at your HealthPoint clinic to get a flu shot and pick up a no cost, take home screening test. Just like the flu shot, this test must be done every year. Make both of these health services an annual tradition.
To make getting both of these important services easier, HealthPoint Renton will be open select Saturdays this fall:
- October 29th, 9 AM - 12 PM
- November 5th, 9 AM - 12 PM
Call (425) 226-5536 for an appointment.
