Colorectal Cancer, also known as CRC, begins with a small growth or a polyp, classified as either adenomatous or hyperplastic which develop into carcinoma over 10 to 15 years. Screening is an opportunity to remove the polyp and early detection. CRC screening allows physicians to detect and remove significant polyps, and thus reduces CRC incidence and mortality. In contrast to other cancers, the removal of pre-cancerous polyps or early-stage CRC will prevent cancer development and reduce mortality, which further highlights the importance of early screening. This course has been produced to increase the awareness of the importance of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening in community healthcare centers that care for the uninsured and the underserved population.
