Core Tip Although the 5-year survival rate for early-stage colorectal cancer (CRC) is approximately 90%, less than half of the American population undergoes screening. This results in delayed diagnoses of advanced tumors with poor prognoses. It is crucial to reevaluate screening strategies and raise awareness among the screen-eligible population about the importance of participating in first-line CRC screening examinations. This editorial briefly reviews the current global landscape of CRC screening, with a focus on existing modalities and population adherence.
