What is colorectal cancer?
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, yet it is also one of the most preventable and treatable cancers. The American Cancer Society recommends all average-risk adults 45 years of age and older get screened. Ask your provider today about your options for screening!
If you’re 45 or older, you should be screened regularly for CRC. The two most common types of screening are colonoscopy, which should be done every 10 years, and multigrade stool DNA test, which should be done every 3 years. If you are at high risk of colorectal cancer, talk to your provider about how often you need to be screened. Factors that make you at high risk include:
● A family history of colorectal cancer or polyps
● A personal history of polyps or inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis)
● A personal history of colorectal cancer
Treatment for colorectal cancer is dependent on each patient’s diagnosis. During an annual physical, we will discuss the importance of colorectal cancer screening with you. If you are screened with a stool DNA test, we will be notified with your results, and will communicate them to you. If further testing is required, we will help you navigate your care path with our pathway partners.
