Colorectal Cancer Treatment and Screening

Cancer Newsline - 2/16/09

Colorectal cancer is very preventable, and although many are aware of the disease most still fail to get screened. The standard recommendations are screening at the age of 50 unless you have inherited risk factors which would require you to be screened sooner. But unfortunately to date, less than 60 percent of individuals are being screened appropriately that are eligible for screening.
