Screening for Patients with Colorectal Cancer Symptoms

Related to: Clinical Guidelines, Diagnosis, Primary Care, Other Specialties

Assess the patient for relevant symptoms (e.g., rectal bleeding; or for signs such as unexplained iron deficiency anemia*) and review history of pertinent diagnostic testing. Your clinical expertise and shared decision making are key to developing an appropriate plan for each patient.
