Colorectal Cancer Talk: Are You At High Risk?

By cancerconnect

Join the Experts for a LIVE Online Video Chat

Colorectal cancer screening should begin at age 50 for those at average risk. But what if you have risk factors? How do you know if you’re at greater risk and what steps should you take to protect yourself?

Find out during a live video web chat with the experts from Roswell Park Cancer Institute from 6 to 7 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, March 24, 2015.

Roswell Park’s comprehensive Colorectal Cancer Screening Program focuses on people at high risk. The program brings together oncologists from various areas of cancer care because people at high risk for colorectal cancer may face risk for other cancers, too.

The chat will answer your questions, including:

  • How do I know if I am at high risk?
  • What role does genetics play?
  • When should high-risk screening begin and what does it involve?
