Abstract

Colorectal cancer screening guidelines are identical for men and women despite reported differences in epidemiology, endoscopy performance, screening preferences, and screening uptake. High-quality research is needed to determine whether gender aspects may in real world increase acceptance and overcome screening barriers, which may lead to better use of limited resources allocated for public health.
