Abstract

There is strong evidence and guidelines that recommend colorectal cancer screening. The benefits of screening are early diagnosis and cancer prevention, through removal of precancerous lesions such as polyps and lateral-spreading tumors. Several countries have established organized or opportunistic screening programs, but there is some debate about the evidence on which screening is based, and some issues are undefined.
