When COVID-19 led to routine care being postponed or cancelled, many patients lacked the ability to be seen for cancer screenings and other health concerns. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men and women. However, screenings for this type of cancer are well below targets, which contributes to colorectal cancer being the most preventable yet least prevented form of cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute. During this podcast, you will hear an excerpt from a webinar, presented on June 18, 2020, where Paul Limburg, M.D., M.P.H., Chief Medical Officer for Screening Unit from Exact Sciences, spoke directly to colorectal screening being a priority, even during COVID-19. This presentation was recorded during a webinar given on June 2020 and does not reflect any data gathered after that date.
