Watch Dr. Kumar


According to the American Cancer Society, excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States.

Dr. Nitin Kumar says that most cases can be prevented by a colorectal cancer screening, which is checking for cancer before there are any symptoms and removing polyps before they can grow into colorectal cancer. According to Dr. Kumar, "With colorectal cancer early detection is your best protection." 

Conditions Treated Include:

  • Abdominal pain

  • IBS

  • Ulcers

  • Diarrhea

  • Colon cancer

  • Acid reflux

  • Polyps occuring in the large intestine

  • Hemorrhoids
