Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I start?

Take the online risk test. At the end of the evaluation, you will be asked if you want us to follow up. If you agree you will receive a free follow-up. If you are over 50, doctors recommend you schedule a colonoscopy because your risk increases with age.

Is my information confidential?

Yes. All information is between you and the Mississippi Valley Surgery Center's gastroenterologists.

What if the assessment reports I'm at risk for colon cancer?

Simply contact a gastroenterologist at the Mississippi Valley Health Network, and they will be happy to set up an evaluation and appointment.

If I need care, is it covered by my health insurance?

Check with your insurance to determine your covered benefits.
