Researchers conducted a case-control study to determine whether colonoscopy is associated with decreased CRC mortality in veterans and whether its effect differs by anatomical location of CRC.
A study using a cohort of women from Kaiser Permanente Washington evaluated the accuracy of risk assessment models for breast cancer that included classic risk factors with and without breast density as an additional factor during more than 10 years of follow-up.
Advances in breast imaging such as DBT offer better, clearer images of breast tissue that can identify even low-grade DCIS tumors. But will more sensitive imaging lead to improved outcomes or increased overtreatment?
The panel assembled and updated the above guidelines and recommendations regarding lung cancer screening and low-dose CT screening programs.
Fifty-three percent of intervention participants used app to self-order a colorectal screening test.
An USPSTF updated recommendation statement for ovarian cancer screening recommends against screening for women who are asymptomatic and do not have high-risk hereditary cancer syndrome.
An analysis of SEER data sought to examine the appropriateness of age- and race-specific breast cancer screening recommendations for white vs nonwhite women in the United States.
In a review of data from the NLST, researchers sought to determine if a risk-targeting approach would more efficiently select high-risk persons for lung cancer screening than the eligibility criteria defined by the NLST.
Initial screens were least effective and least efficient for veterans with lowest lung cancer risk, according to this study.
Study results presented at the 2018 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium demonstrated the sensitivity and specificity of the CMx biomimetic platform, a novel approach to detecting CRC and precancerous lesions that could improve screening rates.
1. In terms of early lung cancer death per individual screened, targeting lung cancer mortality risk may improve lung cancer screening efficiency. 2. However, the increases in efficiency were attenuated when measured by life-years, quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs), and cost-effectiveness. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Current guidelines for lung cancer screening using low-dose computed 
Multimodal screening is more expensive, but reduces ovarian cancer mortality, researchers found.
An analysis of an intervention arm of the PLCO Cancer Screening Trial evaluated the risk of prostate cancer relative to dietary consumption of isoflavones, a dietary compound found in some plant foods.
PanCan study results demonstrate the effectiveness of a novel predictive model in identifying risk of lung cancer in patients who do not meet the screening criteria of other models, including those used in the NLST.
An analysis of 23 studies focused on interventions with the potential to improve follow-up colonoscopy completion rates found that navigation programs are more effective than other interventions studied.
Investigators sought to determine clinical and cost effectiveness of additional colonoscopy screening in patients undergoing FIT screening for colorectal cancer.
Researchers examined popular breast cancer screening recommendations and their varying impact on patient mortality.
An analysis of the 3 most adhered to protocols for screening mammography for breast cancer revealed that the greatest benefit is achieved with annual screening beginning at age 40 years.
Researchers investigated whether a financial reward could help drive colorectal cancer participation.
Contrary to some concerns, persons at high risk for lung cancer who undergo CT lung scans are more likely to attempt smoking cessation regardless of their test results compared with unscreened persons.
The United States Multi-Society Task Force (MSTF) on Colorectal Cancer Screening updated its recommendations, confirming that screening in people at average risk should begin at age 50 years. The update also includes a ranking of current screening modalities.
Prostate-specific molecular imaging, such as PET and CT, can detect more cancer and improve patient care.
Screening mammography programs increased early detection of tumors, improving outcomes for those women; however, these programs also increased detection of tumors that would never pose a clinical problem.
Ethnic Differences, Cultural Barriers Negatively Impact Mammography Follow-up Among Asian Ethnic GroupsJune 23, 2017
Follow-up after abnormal results on mammography is more likely to be delayed among Asian American women compared with white women, and varies between different Asian ethnicities.
The Pediatric Cancer Working Group of the AACR released its first consensus screening guidelines for children with common cancer predisposition syndromes.
Developing a lung cancer screening program involves a number of challenges, including identifying patients in need of screening, patient follow-up, and community support.
Counseling current smokers and helping to direct their care may reduce lung cancer mortality in underserved low-income populations.
Although screening is often recommended as the first line of prevention for most cancers, recent recommendation from the USPSTF advises against thyroid cancer screening in nonsymptomatic adults.
Risk for Disease, Advanced Stage at Diagnosis Higher With Delayed Colonoscopy After Positive FIT ResultsMay 12, 2017
Waiting 10 months or longer before follow-up colonoscopy after a positive FIT result is associated with higher risk of disease as well as advanced stage at diagnosis.
Researchers summarize the program development, outcomes, and lessons learned from a program that provided cancer screening services for under/uninsured Asian Indio women.
