Colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable. With your help, we can dare to imagine a world without it. The key is regular screenings—starting earlier than you might think.
Start screening at age 45 if you are at average risk. If you are at increased risk, you may need to be screened earlier or more often – talk with your doctor right away.
Most people think that colorectal cancer affects only older adults, but estimates suggest that by 2040, colorectal cancer will be the leading cause of cancer related death in adults aged 20-49. Learn more about colorectal cancer and screenings that are available.
Early detection of colorectal cancer can mean Better Outcomes: less extensive treatment, more treatment options and better chances of survival.
