Why screening matters

Getting screened regularly may increase your chances of finding, treating, and potentially surviving colon cancer. Because the risk of colon cancer increases with age, even if you have been screened in the past, you should get screened again in the future.1 How often you screen depends on which test you choose.

Who should get screened?

Everyone 45 years and older at average risk for colon cancer needs to get screened. Even if you don’t have a family history or symptoms. Colon cancer is the 3rd most commonly occurring cancer in both men and women—of all races. Some racial groups are more at risk than others.

Statistically, Black Americans are more likely to develop colon cancer than any other racial group, and more likely to be diagnosed with later-stage colon cancer. Hispanic Americans have the second-highest death rate due to colon cancer, following Black Americans.

Why screening matters

What is colon cancer?

According to the American Cancer Society, colon cancer is an abnormal growth of cells in the colon or rectum that can invade nearby tissues or spread to other organs. Normally, colon cancer starts as a polyp (small growth) that gets larger over time. Not all polyps are cancerous, but some do turn into cancer.1
