Published Recommendations - US Preventive Services Task Force

What's the official recommendation, Doc? This is a tricky question to answer as there are multiple recommending entities in the US and they do not always agree. For instance, recommendations for starting colorectal cancer screening for those at average risk varies: -USPSTF, ACG, and others: at age 50 -American Cancer Association: at age 45 Two of the member organizations of a Multi-Society Task Force (MSTF) endorsed beginning average-risk screening in African Americans at age 45. Speak with your doctor about what's appropriate for you.
