Colorectal Screening Saves Lives

Until now, there had not been a study directly proving that a direct examination of the colon (sigmoidoscopy) saved lives and prevented colorectal cancer. It's also interesting that you'll have all the colorectal polyps you'll ever have around age 55. Does this mean that we screen people too often in America?


I can only think of Farah Fawcett and how she demised that way!
