Cancer Screening Is Not Just For Seniors

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is now recommending lowering the recommended age for colon and rectal cancer screening from age 50 to age 45.  Colorectal cancer recently took the life of “Black Panther” movie star Chadwick Boseman.  He was just 43.  Under the Affordable Care Act, most health insurers would be required to cover the additional screening after the recommendation becomes final, following a one month public comment period.
