Colorectal cancer is the 3rd most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of death from cancer.  Colorectal cancer affects people in all racial and ethnic groups and is most often found in people age 50 and older.

The goods news is that if everyone age 50 and older was screened regularly, 6 out of 10 deaths from colorectal cancer could be prevented.
