While this research highlights the role of aspirin in colon cancer prevention, screening for colorectal cancer remains essential and is the most proven preventive measure that individuals can use to reduce their risk of developing this disease. Adults 50 and over should get a colonoscopy every 10 years. ACG recommends African-Americans begin colorectal cancer screening at age 45. Since the use of aspirin has been associated with GI bleeding, patients should share with their physicians all medications that they are taking whether prescription or over the counter.
