Detecting colorectal cancer early, when it is easier to treat, leads to better outcomes.
Colorectal cancer does not always cause symptoms, especially in the early stages of the disease before it spreads to other parts of the body.
The best way to protect yourself from colorectal cancer is to have regular screenings beginning at age 45, or earlier if your doctor recommends it.
Colorectal cancer is easier to treat when it’s found early. That’s why screening is so important. The costs of colorectal cancer screening are covered by both private insurances and Medicare. That means you should not have to pay out-of-pocket costs, such as co-pays or deductibles.
