With regular screening, colorectal (or colon) cancer is one of the more easily detected and treatable cancers. With early detection, colorectal cancer has a 90 percent survival rate.

The American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) recommends either a colonoscopy every 10 years or an annual FIT screening as the preferred test for colorectal cancer screenings starting at age 50. African Americans should begin cancer screenings at age 45.

Patients with a family history should speak with their doctor about the right cancer screening schedule for early detection.

Prostate Cancer Screening

In the United States, one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. And while the exact causes of prostate cancer are still unknown, there are certain risk factors that are linked to the disease that may increase a person's chance of developing prostate cancer.

Common risk factors include:

  • Age: Men over 50 are at more risk.
  • Race: For unknown reasons, prostate cancer is more common in African American Men.
  • Family history: Men with a first-degree relative (father/brother) are more likely to be diagnosed.
