CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital News Release March 20, 2023

Sulphur Springs, Texas, March 20, 2023 – CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs has ONE mission: To Extend the Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ.

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Recent studies have shown that colonoscopies can save lives. Due to colon cancer being highly curable (if detected early enough), it is recommended that individuals without any symptoms or known risk- such as family history receive their initial colon screening at age 45. However, if individuals are having symptoms, have personal history, or are at high risk they are recommended to screen before age 45. If you or a loved one could benefit from a preventative screening, turn to our compassionate gastroenterology team led by Dr. Umair Sohail. Talk to your primary care provider today about scheduling your screening at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital- Sulphur Springs.
