Fast Facts About Colorectal Cancer

Of cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer – cancer of the colon or rectum – is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States.

Colorectal polyps and colorectal cancer don't always cause symptoms, especially at first. Someone could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. That is why getting screened regularly for colorectal cancer is so important.

  • If there are symptoms, they may include —
  • Blood in or on your stool (bowel movement).
  • Stomach pain, aches, or cramps that don't go away.
  • Losing weight and you don't know why.
    (These symptoms may be caused by something other than cancer. However, the only way to know what is causing them is to see your doctor.)

Screening Saves Lives

Colorectal cancer almost always develops from precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) in the colon or rectum. Screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so that they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening tests can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best.

When Should I Get Screened?

You should begin screening for colorectal cancer soon after turning 50, then continue getting screened at regular intervals. However, you may need to be tested earlier or more often than other people if—

  • You or a close relative have had colorectal polyps or colorectal cancer.
  • You have inflammatory bowel disease.
  • You have genetic syndromes such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) or hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer.

Colonoscopies are Effective

New studies confirm that colonoscopies boost cancer survival. Removing precancerous growths spotted during the test can cut the risk of dying from cancer in half.

Speak with your doctor about when you should begin screening and how often you should be tested, and remember that BRMC has a Colon Cancer Screening Center.

Call 201.225.7640 for more information regarding scheduling a colonoscopy.
