The risk of developing colorectal cancer increases with advancing age. More than 90% of cases occur in people aged 50 or older.
You should begin screening for colorectal cancer soon after turning 50, then continue getting screened at regular intervals.
It is estimated that as many as 60% of colorectal cancer deaths could be prevented if all men and women aged 50 years or older were screened routinely.
