Notes: Abbreviation: CRC = colorectal cancer.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends mammography within 2 years for women aged 50–74 years.
USPSTF recommends Papanicolaou (Pap) test within 3 years for women aged 21–65 years without hysterectomy, or Pap test with human papillomavirus test within 5 years for women aged 30–65 years without hysterectomy. To account for changing screening recommendations over time for cervical cancer for women aged 21–65 years without hysterectomy, only trends for Pap test within 3 years for women aged 21–65 years without hysterectomy were assessed; Pap test data for 2003 are missing.
The USPSTF recommends three options for CRC screening: 1) fecal occult blood test within 1 year; 2) sigmoidoscopy within 5 years and fecal occult blood test within 3 years; or 3) colonoscopy within 10 years for respondents aged 50–75 years.
