New article explores colorectal cancer and family history

Last week a new article on colorectal cancer and family history was published in the journal Cancer: Understanding the contribution of family history to colorectal cancer risk and its clinical implications: A state-of-the-science review.

NCCRT’s Family History Task Group conducted this review to better understand the current state of knowledge regarding family history and colorectal cancer. The review addresses six key questions and proposes four strategies for reducing colorectal cancer in persons with familial risk.

Congratulations to the many NCCRT Family History Task Group members that contributed to this paper!:
