‘The Incredible Colon’ Educated Hundreds at Lourdes

Kids-at-colonPADUCAH, Ky. (3/20/14) — Hundreds of people toured the Incredible Colon, the oversized, inflatable walk through replica of the human colon today at Lourdes.

The 20-foot long, 10-foot tall exhibit shows examples of polyps, healthy colon tissue and several non-cancerous diseases of the colon.

Mercy Medical Associates Gastroenterologist, Dr. Shane Hendon, educated visitors on signs, symptoms, risk factors for colon cancer. “I can’t stress enough the importance of getting the appropriate screenings for colon cancer,” says Dr. Hendon. “With screenings, we find and remove polyps before they become cancer or we find cancers in their earliest, most treatable state.”

To schedule a colon screening, call Mercy Gastroenterology (270) 443-0777.
