Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States. However, when colorectal cancer is found and treated early, there is a 90% survival rate. Unfortunately, one in three American adults are not screened as recommended. There are a few screening tests available, but a colonoscopy is the only screening test that both detects and prevents cancer. Other tests can miss certain polyps (pre-cancer), and have false positive or false negative results. Furthermore, a colonoscopy is the only test that allows removal of pre-cancerous lesions.
