Things to know before using this tool:
The Colorectal Cancer Risk Assessment Tool was designed for use by doctors and other health providers with their patients. If you are not a health provider, take these results to your doctor or other health provider to discuss your personal risk of colorectal cancer. (Colorectal cancer is another way to say colon and rectal cancer).
This tool can estimate the risk of colorectal cancer for men and women who are:
◦Between the ages of 50 and 85
◦Asian American/Pacific Islander
This tool does not yet apply to American Indians and Alaska Natives, but we are working to improve the tool for use by these groups of people.
This tool cannot accurately estimate risk of colorectal cancer for people who have the following problems:
◦Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP)
◦Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC), also known as Lynch Syndrome
◦Personal history of colorectal cancer
It will take about 5 to 8 minutes to answer all the questions and obtain your risk estimate.
