Colorectal Cancer: Early Detection and Routine Screening

Colon Cancer, Early Detection and The Importance of Routine Screening
Colorectal cancer is the fourth most commonly diagnosed cancer among adults in the United States. Currently, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends routine screening for adults ages 50 to 75.
However, the American Cancer Society recently modified their recommendation to begin at age 45 for those with average risk. The guideline was changed based in part on new data showing increased rates of colorectal cancer in younger populations.
Companies like Clinical Genomics are focused on improving the sensitivity and accuracy of screening tests, as well as providing options that may lead to early detection of residual and recurrent colorectal cancer in patients who have undergone primary treatment.
