Every year, there are more than 142,000 NEW cases and more than 52,000 deaths of colorectal cancer in the United States. Some Facts on Colorectal Cancer
The Good News
In January 2013, the American Cancer Society reported a 30% decrease in the mortality rate for colorectal cancer. They attribute the decrease in mortality to the increase in screening rates.
Colon cancer and rectal cancer can be prevented. Through screening and a follow-up visit with your physician, a normal (benign) polyp called an adenoma can be removed before it becomes cancerous. Screening can detect colorectal cancer early — when it is most curable. All adults (men AND women) over the age of 50 are at risk for colorectal cancer and should be screened for adenomatous polyps and cancer. Some with higher risk should work with a doctor to develop an individualized screening plan.
