Why is this important?

Colorectal cancer--cancer of the colon or rectum--is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that if all adults aged 50 or older had regular screening tests for colon cancer, as many as 60% of the deaths from colorectal cancer could be prevented. While 90% of colorectal cancer cases occur in adults aged 50 or older, it is essential for individuals with risk factors (those with a family history of colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, or heavy alcohol use) to seek regular screening earlier.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the colorectal cancer death rate to 14.5 deaths per 100,000 population.
