Colorectal cancer screening aims to detect this type of cancer at an early stage, before the signs and symptoms of the disease appear.
It is recommended that those aged 50 to 74 who are at medium risk (exhibiting no symptoms or any other risk factors) take a colorectal cancer screening test every 2 years.
