Colorectal cancer is virtually completely preventable if screenings and, if necessary, treatment is done early enough. Why wouldn’t you avoid the possibility of having to deal with the trauma of cancer by having the screening. The alternative is so much worse. This is one thing that I can do to prevent me from getting colorectal cancer. It is a no brainer to make the decision to have the screening done. In my case the doctor found and removed a polyp and I will be going back for a screening 5 years from the procedure instead of the usual 10.
