Cancer Prevention

Prevention is the best way to promote health. Early detection saves lives. Many disorders of the digestive tract such as cancers of the colon, rectum and esophagus are easily preventable and may be curable if diagnosed early. For example, removing colon polyps by colonoscopy reduce the risk of colon cancer. Treatment of acid reflux (GERD) and proper evaluation by an upper endoscopy can decrease the risk of esophageal cancer. Eradicating bacteria called H. pylori can reduce the risk of gastric cancer. As a gastroenterologist, Dr. Mehdizadeh specializes in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of common and rare gastrointestinal cancers. Read More
