Abstract

A healthy 76-year-old woman presents as a new patient for primary care. She reports having one daily bowel movement and no rectal bleeding. She has no family history of colorectal cancer. She reports having negative stool card tests during gynecologic examinations, most recently at 65 years of age. Would you advise this patient to undergo colon-cancer screening, and if so, what test would you recommend?
