dc.description.abstractGood evidence supports fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) for patients up to age 75 (grade of recommendation: A, based on systematic review of randomized controlled trials). There is insufficient evidence to recommend for or against colorectal cancer (CRC) screening after age 75 (grade of recommendation: D, based on expert opinion). CRC screening may be discontinued between ages 75 and 80, preferably after at least 1 negative screening examination result. Unusually healthy individuals may choose to continue screening until a later age.eng
