# COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING DISCUSSION
+ This is a very common disease and the third most common cancer in the US. Prevention is accomplished by screening asymptomatic individuals. The average American has a 6% risk for colon cancer, and this number is nearly doubled if there is a strong family history of this disease. However, the majority of patients diagnosed with this disease have no immediate family members with colon cancer.
+ The current recommendation is to start screening at age 50 (or age 40 for those with with first degree relative diagnosed with colon cancer before age 60).
+ Since 97% of colorectal cancer starts as a polyp, the process can be interrupted and a colonoscopy is a vital tool in the prevention of colon cancer.
