National Colorectal Awareness
Colorectal cancer is one of the most preventable cancers if you get screened. Screening is recommended to start at age 45 for adults with average risk factors. Schedule your colonoscopy
Screening can detect issues in their earliest, most treatable stages, giving you the chance to prevent cancer from ever occurring.
Colorectal cancer, sometimes called colon and rectal cancers, often begins as a growth called a polyp. A polyp is a growth of abnormal cells that may form on the inner wall of the colon or rectum. Some polyps become cancer over time. Finding and removing polyps can prevent colorectal cancer.
The American Cancer Society’s estimates for the number of colorectal cancer cases in the United States are over 151,000 new cases for 2022. It is expected to cause about 52,580 deaths during this year.
Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the 3rd most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States and is the 2nd leading cause of cancer related deaths among men and women combined in the United States.
Everyone is at some risk for developing cancer of the colon or rectum, collectively known as colorectal cancer. And everyone can take steps to reduce his or her risk. In fact, about 90 percent of colorectal cancers may be preventable.
- Are you 45 or older?
- Are you at high risk for colon cancer?

In the United States, the average lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is about 5 percent, or one in 20. You may be at higher risk if one or more of the following factors apply to you:
