The United States Preventive Services Task Forces recently recommended making colorectal cancer screenings more common starting at age 45. It’s a move that John Sarzoza  Junior of Faribault strongly supports. Sarzoza was diagnosed with late-stage colon cancer four years ago at age 48…

“I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who’s had to go through what I had to go through, and so any time I hear that there’s an effort out there to lower the screening age to an earlier age, I’m all for it.”

Around 18,000 adults in the U-S are diagnosed with colorectal cancer under the age of 50 each year, 75-percent of them between the ages of 45-49.
