    Colon cancer gets a lot of younger people, who do not routinely get tested or examined

    Skip Chandler NU'68 , better known as Nev Chandler , the voice of the Cleveland Browns and Indians, succumbed at age 47 in 1994 from colon cancer
    Nev had a vast knowledge of almost all sports and a biting sense of humor. I never heard him announce a game and he became ill before I was to meet him in Baltimore for an Indians v Orioles game

    A simple stool sample can detect blood, often the first finding in a malignancy. There is a DNA stool test available but I am not sure about its reliability. Colonoscopy is recommended at age 45 but few people follow this recommendation

    Due to family history, I had my first colonoscopy three years ago (I’m 39 now). I will be having one every five years the rest of my life.

    The prep is not fun, but the procedure itself is really a piece of cake. Everyone should really try and get one every five or so years starting at age 40 if possible..

    45 even with no known risk factors? I thought it was age 50.

    50 is the screening age. He would get genetic testing with him developing colon cancer prior to 50. Lynch syndrome is the most common genetic syndrome but attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis is and cowden syndrome to name a few. Even in the absence of family history of colon or other types of cancer we do find hereditary syndromes. Also inflammatory bowel diseases such as crohns disease and ulcerative colitis are risk factors

    It depends on which society's recommendation you follow.

    The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends that screening for begin at age 50.

    The American Cancer Society (ACS) released an updated recommendation in 2018 that colorectal cancer screening begin at age 45 for patients at average risk.
