Colorectal Cancer Screening Saves Lives
If you're 50 or older, getting a screening test for colorectal cancer could save your life. Here's how:
Colorectal cancer usually starts from polyps in the colon or rectum. A polyp is a growth that shouldn't be there.
Over time, some polyps can turn into cancer.
Screening tests can find polyps, so they can be removed before they turn into cancer.
Screening test can also find colorectal cancer early, when the chance of being cured is good.
