Colorectal cancer (CRC) is among the highest leading causes of cancer death in the United States.
It is estimated that every year, 150,000 individuals will be diagnosed in the US alone.
In early onset, CRC rarely shows any signs or symptoms, therefore it is highly unlikely to diagnose without screening.
Obtaining the right screening test on time is the most effective preventative measure that you can take.
The American Cancer Society recommends that men and women begin receiving colorectal cancer screening at age 45.
It is crucial to talk with your doctor about your eligibility as 1 in 3 individuals aged 45-75 are not getting screened as recommended.
Screenings are key to detecting precancerous polyps for those above the age of 45 or who have a family history of CRC.
Removing polyps early on has a significant impact on preventing cancer altogether as CRC has a 90% survival rate with early detection.
