Individual colorectal cancer risk counselling

What is my colorectal cancer risk?  Many patients want to know.  Does the fact that you have no relatives in your family protect you?  Did you know that 75% of patients with colorectal cancer are the first ones in their family to have it?  What is your risk if a sibling, parent, cousin or grandparent has colon cancer?  What if you are adopted? Does a particular family history mean that a certain type of screening test is best or that others should be avoided?  You can discuss all of these issues with the Pezim Clinic physician so you will know if and when and how you need to be screened.
