Abstract

Colorectal cancer incidence and mortality rates in Arkansas exceed national averages and can be reduced through systematic screening that either identifies precursor lesions that can be removed before cancer develops, or diagnoses cancer at an early stage when it is most responsive to treatment. Results of a survey assessing screening status of Arkansas residents and dimensions of health care supporting colorectal screening indicate that primary care providers can play an important role in efforts to decrease the burden of colorectal cancer by informing patients about risk factors and providing advice about the full range of screening options.
