Why Screenings Are Important

Why is this important?

Colorectal cancer is the nation's No. 2 cancer killer, claiming 55,000 persons each year.

Why should screening tests be done?

  • Screening can prevent cancer by removing pre-cancerous growths (polyps).
  • Early detection diagnoses cancers before they have a chance to spread.
  • Up to 80% of colon cancer deaths can be prevented by timely removal of pre-cancerous polyps.
