Familial Risk and Colorectal Cancer Screening – December 8, 2016
This webinar addressed what we know and don’t know about colorectal cancer screening for those with a familiar risk of colorectal cancer. Study authors Dr. Jan Lowery and Dr. Dennis Ahnen review the NCCRT-commissioned article that was published in June 2016 on colorectal cancer and family history in the journal Cancer: Understanding the contribution of family history to colorectal cancer risk and its clinical implications: A state-of-the-science review. The NCCRT’s Family History Task Group conducted this review to better understand the current state of knowledge regarding family history and colorectal cancer.
