- Colorectal cancer begins with the formation of polyps in the colon or rectum. These polyps can be cancerous or non-cancerous but the non-cancerous polyps can turn malignant if left to develop further. Screening early will ensure doctors find and remove any polyps and check for cancer. Catching cancer early improves the survival chances of patients and also improves the response to treatment.
- About one in three people above 50 years do not get screened for colorectal cancerand this affects the survival rates in the country. Screening is about prevention or early detection and is therefore always advisable.
So far, it is only the US that has made these new recommendations. The move is yet to spread to other regions. Doctors are also not sure whether it will have the expected impact but hopes remain high. In the meantime, patients will need to consult with their doctors to decide the best option for them. Coming to a consensus from an informed perspective is better than making the choice on their own without a medical perspective.
