Colorectal cancer remains one of most common cancers in the United States. However, colorectal cancer screening can increase the chances of detection and early treatment. According to research supported by the National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, colorectal cancer usually starts as a small growth called a polyp long before symptoms appear. Screening tests can find polyps that can be removed before they turn into cancer.
