Answer

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) has released separate guidelines for average-risk and high-risk individuals. [155, 156]  For average individuals, the recommendations are nearly identical to those of the joint American Cancer Society (ACS), US Multi-Society Task Force on Colorectal Cancer, and American College of Radiology.
