If you have had a colorectal screening and your doctor finds something abnormal you may be sent to see a colorectal surgeon to further evaluate and diagnose your condition.

Remember, one of the best things you can do is get a screening colonoscopy. Colorectal cancer deaths could be cut in half if everyone over the age of 50 got tested for the disease.
