Know Your Risk for Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer death in the United States.

The reason colorectal cancer persists in claiming so many lives is simple: too many people still do not get screened. If everyone who should receive regular colorectal screenings followed through with the exam, the death rate from colorectal cancer could be reduced by 60 percent.

That’s why all adults aged 50 and older — and some younger adults, depending on their risk factors — should receive regular colorectal screenings, including a colonoscopy.

With a colonoscopy, a physician can detect cancers at their smallest, when treatment is most effective, and even prevent colorectal cancer by removing polyps that can develop into cancer.

Learn your risk for developing this dangerous cancer now by taking a free online risk assessment from Tanner. Share the results with your gastroenterologist or primary care provider and ask for his or her guidance on whether you should receive this life-saving screening.
