Colorectal screening nearly halves cancer risk

The research, involving nearly 200,000 people from NSW who were part of the 45 and Up Study, found that people who were screened for colorectal cancer (CRC) reduced their risk of developing the disease by 44% in the next four years compared to those who had not been screened.

The reduced risk was more pronounced for rectal and distal compared to proximal cancers.
