Colorectal Screening Program

Colon or colorectal cancer is often preventable and curable.  However, it is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Maryland.  That's why it is important to get regular colonoscopy screenings.

Doctors Community Hospital's compassionate and experienced team provides free colonoscopies.  To qualify, you must be:

  • A Prince George's County resident
  • Age 50 or older
  • Uninsured or underinsured
  • Younger than age 50 with a family history of colorectal cancer

For more information, contact our Cancer Prevention, Education, Screening and Treatment (CPEST) program at 301-552-7705.  This program is funded by a Cigarette Restitution Fund and Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene grant.
