    Colorectal Cancer Risk Assessment

    Cancer of the colon or rectum (colorectal cancer) usually develops slowly, over several years. Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in both men and women in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths overall, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). Still, the death rate from colorectal cancer has been dropping for more than 20 years because of better detection and treatment. Take this simple assessment to learn about your risks for colorectal cancer.
