Dr. Andrew J. Vorenberg and Dr. Cary L. Gentry recently joined the HCB2 Fight Right podcast.
In the 30-minute conversation, they discussed what colorectal (colon and rectal) cancer screening is, and explained the various screening options available.
They also answer common questions including:
- If you have a family history of polyps, should screening begin earlier?
- Has the age for routine screening been lowered to age 45?
- What type of patient is eligible for a noninvasive, in-home screening option?

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month dedicated to awareness, education and the importance of colonoscopy screenings to prevent colon cancer before it starts.
Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States but when caught early it is highly treatable. An estimated 60% of the deaths attributed to colon cancer could be prevented with routine screenings, like colonoscopies. Dr. Vorenberg, and all the physicians at CRS, are dedicated to educating patients, and the community, about the importance of simple screening tests that could save many lives.
