    Thank you for this good and interested summary regarding updated CRC screening.
    As it is clear for all of us, the CRC screening in average-risk adults is starting at the age 45 to 75 in both American-African and non-American-African populations, according to the most recent recommendation by ACS and USPSTF. No doubt, the individual-based screening of those beyond 75 is also understandable.
    What is not clear is the lack of uniform guidelines regarding the question: when you start screening individuals who may consider high risk for CRC? These include for example families with colonic polyposis, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer, etc. Also it may involve the first-degree relatives with non-familial colorectal cancer.
