SGV Medical Supplies: 'Colostomy Supplies Easier to Obtain for the Colon Cancer Survivor'
Date:3/3/2008

LOS ANGELES, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Cancer Society (http://www.cancer.org) lists March 2008 as Colon Cancer Awareness Month aiding people in preventing the onset of colon cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, "153,760 new Colon and Rectal Cancer cases are discovered annually...deaths from Colon and Rectal Cancer totaled 52,180 during 2007." Frequent Colon screenings help people either avoid Colon Cancer or detect tumors earlier than in the past. Colon Cancer often requires colostomy surgery (removing a portion of the colon) resulting in the need to wear a colostomy bag.

Early detection results in surgeons discovering and removing smaller tumors. These patients wear a bag for 6 - 18 months then, depending on the success of radiation and strength of the patient, the gastroenterologist may reconnect the colon eliminating the need for a bag. Frequently the use of the bag is permanent.

Today's inconspicuous low-profile colostomy systems allow people to wear whatever clothing they want and for the most part they can lead a normal active life. Diets will eventually return to pre-surgery offerings and going into the water to bathe or swim is not a problem.

Gone are the days of asking the local pharmacist to special order colostomy bags, then waiting at the checkout counter. SGV Medical Supplies (http://www.sgvmedical.com) are set up to exclusively ship colostomy supplies via discreet packing directly to the patient's door via UPS.

According to a recent survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, "53% of the 50-64 year olds go online for health information, and is considered the first media source for health information."
