Get Your Butt Seen!

with early detection!

The Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada recommends all Canadians aged 50 and over get screened. Some people have risk factors that make them more likely to develop colorectal cancer at a young age. Screening should begin earlier in these people. Screening for colorectal cancer should begin at a younger age if:
•You have had colorectal cancer or polyps in the past

•You have a family history of colorectal cancer or polyps

•You have ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease

•You have a hereditary colon cancer syndrome

•You eat a high fat, low fiber diet

Those at a higher risk of developing the disease, i.e. those with a family history, should speak to their doctors about special screening guidelines.
