Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States.  Many of these deaths could be prevented by early detection of the disease through a simple screening process.

Your risk for developing this type of cancer increases with age. More than 90 percent of those diagnosed with colorectal cancer are 50 or older.

 

  • Are you at risk? Your risk factor increases if you, or a close relative, have had colorectal polyps or if you have inflammatory bowel disease.
  • When should you get tested? If you are 50 or older, you should be tested now and every 1-10 years, depending on the type of test used and your risk factors.
  • Individuals with higher risk factors may need to be tested before the age of 50.

These screenings are covered under federal healthcare reform for people ages 50 to 75. Medical Mutual and its Family of Companies covers this screening starting at age 40.

Contact your doctor for more information or if you have questions and be sure to refer to your plan certificate for complete coverage details.
