Colorectal Cancer Screening Clinic

If caught early, colorectal cancer can often be successfully treated. The Colorectal Cancer Screening Clinic at Johns Hopkins aims to help with colorectal cancer prevention and early diagnosis by:

  • Providing screening tests and procedures to detect cancer, polyps, lesions and other conditions that may develop into cancer.
  • Offering care at several convenient locations in Maryland and Washington, D.C.
  • Working closely with your referring physician to communicate findings and coordinate care.

Screening Procedures We Offer

Colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy are two of the most effective ways to screen for colorectal cancer. They allow for a close look at the lining of the colon. Learn more about these procedures in our Health section.
If you are looking for virtual colonoscopy, digital rectal exam or other non-endoscopic procedures, please work with your primary care provider to schedule them.

For Referring Physicians

To expedite patient care, we offer direct access endoscopy for referring physicians, allowing you to schedule standard diagnostic endoscopic procedures for colorectal cancer without consultations. Within three weeks after your patient’s appointment, you will receive a written report of all procedures and biopsies conducted and further surveillance recommendations.
The clinic welcomes new patients and can schedule immediate appointments.

Direct Access Endoscopy
