Expanding access to colorectal cancer treatment

veteran and clinician

VA News – March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, so VA is shining a light on the facts about this cancer, who should get screened, and why screening is more accessible to Veterans than you might think.

Screening is crucial to detect polyps early before they have a chance to become cancer or to detect cancer at an early stage when treatment is most effective. VA’s Mailed FIT Program delivers FIT kits to the homes of Veterans eligible for CRC screening, meaning Veterans have access to high-quality CRC screening without leaving their home.
