FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, CAMBRIDGE, MA, August 9, 10:00 AM: Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States and a leading cause of death throughout the world. This deadly disease is most frequently diagnosed between the ages of 65 and 74 years and the median age at death from colorectal cancer is 68 years. In The United Sates alone it is estimated that 134,000 persons will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and about 49,000 will die as a result of it. Worldwide, these numbers are much higher.
Recent studies (US Preventive Services Task Force, 2016) have clearly demonstrated that screening for colorectal cancer in average-risk, asymptomatic adults aged 50 to 75 years is of substantial benefit. There is likely some benefit to screening in younger individuals as well. The decision to screen for colorectal cancer in adults aged 76 to 85 years should be an individual one, taking into account the patient’s overall health and prior screening history. Although there are several screening strategies available to help with early detection, screening for colorectal cancer is significantly underused.
