Large social inequalities exist in the colorectal cancer screening uptage. The inequalities are evident at first invitation for fecal immonuchemical test (FIT) and they are evident at follow-up colon examination in population submitting a positive FIT. When inequalities are evident at each stage the overall inequalities are enhanced and should be addressed. New technologies are strategies should be tested with the reduction of inequalities in mind.
