Colorectal Cancer: Are you at risk?

If you are 45 or older or have a family history of colorectal cancer, the American Cancer Society recommends that you be screened for signs of colorectal cancer. Precancerous polyps and early-stage colorectal cancer don't always cause symptoms, especially at first. This means that someone could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. This is why having a screening test is so important.
What are the symptoms?

Symptoms of polyps or colorectal cancer may include:

-blood in or on your stool (bowel movement)
-stomach pains, aches, or cramps that don’t go away
-unexplained weight loss
