(NEW YORK) -- A new study found that more than 500,000 colorectal cancers were prevented by screening in the United States between 1976 and 2009.
The study, published in the journal Cancer, was conducted by experts at Yale University. In the 33-year span, increased numbers of men and women underwent regular cancer screening tests, including colonoscopies, sigmoidoscopies and fecal occult blood testing.
Experts say the testing contributed significantly to the decrease in colorectal cancer rates. In all, researchers claim 555,000 cancers were prevented.
