What everyone should know about screening and prevention
Colorectal cancer (cancer in the colon or rectum) first develops with few, if any, symptoms. Be proactive and talk to your doctor.
Screening tests help your doctor find polyps or cancer before you even have symptoms. Learn how early detection may prevent polyps from becoming cancer.
Who should be screened and when
Your individual risk factors – such as ethnicity, lifestyle and family history – will determine when you should start getting checked. See if you are at risk.
