Colorectal Cancer Screening & Prevention

According to the American Cancer Society, each year, there are nearly 100,000 new cases of colon cancer and nearly 40,000 new cases of rectal cancer.

With regular screening, colon or rectal (colorectal) cancers are some of the more easily detected and treatable cancers. If caught early, colorectal cancers have a 90 percent survival rate. Currently, there are more than 1 million colorectal cancer survivors in the United States alone.

Risk Factors

The lifetime risk of developing colon or rectal cancer is 1 in 21 for men and 1 in 23 for women, which is why, at Renown Health, we believe early detection testing is vital to saving lives.
