Colorectal Cancer Screening
45 is the new 50!
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends colorectal cancer screening to begin at age 45, rather than 50. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the 3rd cause of cancer and the 2nd most common cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. But the good news is that this form of caner is largely preventable with screening. If you are 45 or have a family history of CRC, see your doctor and get screened!
