Clinical Research of South Nevada conducts colorectal cancer screenings to identify any types of cancer that may begin in the colon or rectum. Screenings are reserved for patients over the age of 50 who have had positive results after a colonoscopy, have a family history of cancer, or have abnormal growths called polyps in the colon. Our specialists will explain every part of the process and provide exceptional care during your screening.

Our highly trained professionals also conduct research based on screenings from eligible, participating patients aged 55 and over, including those who have never had a colonoscopy. Patients who enroll in the colorectal cancer detection research program are not charged for services but are compensated for their time. Schedule a screening with us at our Las Vegas, NV office and learn more about our research.

What are the Benefits of Colorectal Cancer Screenings?

Early detection is key when it comes to colorectal cancer, and understanding the importance of regular screenings can save lives. Benefits include:

  • Increased chance for successful treatment: When colonoscopies or other screenings detect cancerous cells early, our team can develop a comprehensive care plan.
  • Reduced mortality rates: Screenings help identify cancer in the early stages, making it easier to manage through treatment.
  • Peace of mind: Our team at Clinical Research of South Nevada can put your mind at ease by keeping a close watch for any signs of colorectal cancer.

Our specialists take great care to ensure that the screening process is not only thorough but comfortable. We understand that colorectal cancer can be a scary prospect, so we provide comprehensive support and compassionate care every step of the way.

To identify colorectal cancer, we may perform any of several types of diagnostic tests and screenings, including the following:

  • Colonoscopy: The procedure uses a specialized tube to examine the inside of the colon. Biopsy forceps can also be passed through the tube to take a small tissue sample.
  • Biopsy: This surgical procedure removes a small amount of tissue from a suspected area and sends the tissue to a certified lab and pathologist to determine whether the cells are cancerous or noncancerous.
  • Blood tests: These can be conducted to identify any harmful abnormalities.
  • Ultrasound: A live picture generated through sound waves is analyzed by a medical specialist to identify any abnormalities or determine if colorectal cancer may be present in other areas.
  • Computed tomography (CT): This 3-dimensional imaging procedure captures pictures of the colon, sometimes with help from a specialized dye to see more detailed images.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): This test uses strong magnetic fields to capture images of the colon. It can also measure the size of a tumor.
  • Positron emission tomography (PET): Utilizing a radiotracer, this imaging scan captures pictures of the colon, other organs, and surrounding tissues. A PET may take 60 – 90 minutes to perform.

The office was able to get me in with no problem, even with me trying to schedule the same day! Just came in with some allergy issues that were bothering me and not improving. I was worried about why they were happening but the doctor there was able to see me and help me figure out what was going on. He also followed up with my pharmacy and made sure I got what I needed. Overall great experience!

About Us
What test will be best for me?
Your provider at Clinical Research of South Nevada will be in communication with you as to which test(s) will be needed for your colorectal cancer screening. Colonoscopies are a standard across the board used in routine screening processes. If something else is flagged, your provider may order more testing for diagnostic purposes.
Is colorectal cancer screening the same thing as a colonoscopy?
As mentioned above, a colonoscopy is one of several ways used to screen for colorectal cancer. Colonoscopies are generally referred out from primary caregivers. Your provider will be happy to explain more about the different options available.
How often do I need colorectal cancer screening?
Colorectal cancer screening becomes routine testing at or around age 45. If the patient has a family history of colon cancer, they may begin routine screenings earlier in life. In general, screening is recommended every 1 — 3 years after starting.
