Your colorectal cancer risk

Did you know?

Louisiana has the fourth highest death rate from colorectal cancer in the nation. That is why getting your colorectal cancer screening is so important.

You are at risk of colorectal cancer if you fall within ANY of these categories:

  • Are age 45 or older
  • Do not exercise
  • Have a family history of colorectal cancer
  • Smoke tobacco
  • Are overweight (have a BMI of 25.0 or greater)
  • Consume more than 2 glasses of alcohol per day
  • Have type 2 diabetes or Crohn’s disease
  • Eat more than three portions of red meat or processed meat (like deli meat, bacon and hot dogs) per week

Colorectal cancer almost always develops from abnormal growths in the colon or rectum. Screening tests can help find these abnormal growths so they can be removed before they turn into cancer.

Types of screenings

Multiple screening tests are available and are used at different times. Possible tests include:

  • Colonoscopy every 10 years
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years
  • CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy) every 5 years
  • Yearly fecal occult blood test
  • Yearly stool fecal immunochemical test (FIT)
  • Stool DNA test every 1 to 3 years

Talk with your primary care provider about which test is best for you. Some people should be screened using a different schedule because of their personal or family health history. Talk with your primary care provider about your health history.
