The American Cancer Society and Jackson-Hinds Comprehensive Health Center Leads the Way


The American Cancer Society presented Jackson-Hinds Comprehensive Health Center with a certificate of appreciation. ACS and JHCHC partnership brings awareness for the importance of colorectal cancer screening.

The American Cancer Society now recommends that screening begin at age 45 for people at average risk. The guideline was changed last year, based in part, on new data showing rates of colorectal cancer are increasing in younger populations.


Colorectal cancer screening can be done either with a sensitive test that looks for signs of cancer in a person’s stool (a stool-based test), or with an exam that looks at the colon and rectum (a visual exam, such as a colonoscopy). If a person chooses to be screened with a test other than colonoscopy, any abnormal test result should be followed up with a timely colonoscopy in order to complete the screening process.


Screening can save lives, but only if people get tested. Patients are encouraged to talk to their health care provider about which tests might be good options for them and talk to their insurance provider about insurance coverage.
