Date:3/4/2011

risk factors for colon cancer, such as first-degree relatives who had colon cancer, need to be screened earlier and perhaps more often, said Grady, who recommends that such patients talk to their doctor for screening recommendations.

Washington is among 27 states that mandate health insurance coverage of colon cancer screening, which helps to eliminate the financial obstacle to testing.

About Seattle Cancer Care Alliance - 10 Years, Thousands of Lives Saved

Every day, the goal of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is to turn cancer patients into cancer survivors. SCCA unites the adult and pediatric cancer-care programs of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine and Seattle Children's. Together they comprise the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in six states, from Washington to the Dakotas. A major focus of SCCA is to speed the transfer of new diagnostic and treatment techniques from the research setting to the patient bedside. Patients receive the latest research-based cancer therapies as well as cutting-edge treatments. SCCA has three clinical-care sites: an outpatient clinic on the Hutchinson Center campus, a pediatric-inpatient unit at Children's and an adult-inpatient unit at UW Medical Center. SCCA celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2011. For more information visit www.seattlecca.org
