Colon Cancer Coalition:

Talking Shit Saves Lives

Screening should begin for most average-risk adults at age 45 and earlier for those with a family history or other risk factors. Since people under 45 don’t qualify for screening due to insurance guidelines, we need them to pay attention every time they go to the bathroom. Their stool might be telling them something significant: the symptoms of colorectal cancer.

If they see anything out of the ordinary, they need to talk to a doctor.
