What is Nebraska Colon Cancer Screening Program (NCP)?
Nebraska colon Cancer Screening Program (NCP) is a colon cancer screening program for men and women, 50-74 years of age, fall within income guidelines, are citizens or legal residents and don't have insurance that pays for preventive services. Screening saves lives! Women and men over the age of 50 are at an increased risk for colon cancer. Having regular screening tests beginning at age 50 could save your life. Screening can find precancerous polyps (abnormal growths in the colon or rectum) so they can be removed before turning into cancer. Screening can find colorectal cancer at an early stage, when treatment often leads to a cure.
