Importance of starting screening at 45 years old

Dr. Stony Anderson, President of C4, wants to encourage everyone to get screened for colorectal cancer beginning at 45 if you are average risk for developing the disease. Talk to your doctor about potential risk factors and when might be the best time for you to initiate screening. If you are high risk, based on family genetic history or personal medical history, your doctor can help you decide when might be the best time to begin screening. (Embedded video)
