Q:Who is considered High Risk for Colorectal Cancer?
A:Colonoscopy is recommended for individuals of any age who are at higher than average risk for developing colorectal cancer by virtue of:
Personal history of colorectal cancer or colorectal polyps
A strong family history of the disease
Inherited forms of colorectal polyps or cancer
Predisposing chronic digestive condition such as inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis)
