Poor early detection major factor poorer CRC outcomes among African American men

African American men have the lowest five-year survival rate for colorectal cancer (CRC) and low adherence to recommended early detection screening (colonoscopy and home-based stool testing kits) is a major contributing factor, according to the findings of a study, ‘Interventions for increasing colorectal cancer screening uptake among African-American men: A systematic review and meta-analysis’, published the journal PLOS ONE.
