Your Health with NEW Health – colorectal cancer screening
Dr. Robby Riddle talks about the importance of colorectal screening in this video.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends that adults aged 50-75 be screened for colorectal cancer. The decision to be screened after age 75 should be made on an individual basis. If you are aged 76-85, ask your doctor if you should be screened. There is no single best test for any person. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Talk to your doctor about which test or tests are right for you, and how often you should be screened. Getting screened could save your life!
