Don’t miss your moment. 

If you are 45 or older and have not yet been screened for colorectal cancer, you could miss a moment you’ve been waiting for. Colorectal cancer is America’s second-leading cause of cancer death among men and women combined. But screening helps. If everyone was screened as recommended, the colorectal cancer death rate could drop by up to 70 percent.

 Colorectal Cancer Screening Tests:

  • A colonoscopy is the best test. It both detects cancer and prevents it by removing precancerous polyps.
  • Other tests can be done easily in your own home. They can tell you more about whether you need a colonoscopy.
  • To learn more about all of the different tests available, visit this helpful resource from the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
