  • March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. During Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, the CDC and other federal agencies promote colorectal cancer screenings, which can be lifesaving. Regular screening, beginning at age 50, is the key to preventing colorectal cancer. If you’re 50 to 75 years old, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. If you’re younger than 50 and think you may be at high risk of getting colorectal cancer, or if you’re older than 75, ask your primary care provider if you should be screened.
