Did You Know…
• Anyone can get colorectal cancer.
• Colorectal cancer screening is recommended for everyone at age 50. (Those who have a family history of colorectal cancer should ask their doctor about getting screened earlier than age 50.)
• Colorectal polyps and colorectal cancer don't always cause symptoms, especially at first. Someone could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. That is why getting screened regularly for colorectal cancer is so important.
• Screening for colorectal cancer helps prevent this disease. Screening can find precancerous polyps (abnormal growths), so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening also finds colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best.
