Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in Idaho. The good news is that early detection saves lives! If you are 50 years old or older talk to your doctor about colorectal cancer screening.

We’d love your input!

The Idaho Cancer Control Programs are gathering information to better understand why people do or do not get screened for cancer. This information will help in the development of future cancer control programs. If you are between 50 and 75 years of age, please take this short 2-5 minute anonymous survey. Upon completion of the survey, respondents will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for a pair of Boise Hawks Baseball Tickets for this summer.
