Colorectal Cancer

In the U.S., colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer diagnosed among men and women and the second leading cause of death from cancer. CRC largely can be prevented by the detection and removal of adenomatous polyps. Talk to average risk patients beginning at of 50 and identify high risk patients (such as those with Lynch syndrome or IBD) to encourage screening and reduce deaths from CRC.
