CDC's Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP) provides funding to 25 states and 4 tribes across the United States for five years. The CRCCP's goal is to increase colorectal (colon) cancer screening rates among men and women aged 50 years and older from about 64% to 80% in the funded states by 2014. An increase in screening rates will reduce illness and death from colorectal cancer.
Colorectal Cancer Screening Saves Lives
Screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so that they can be removed before they turn into cancer. If you're 50 or older, get screened.
