Screening with flexible sigmoidoscopy resulted in a reduced incidence and rate of death of colorectal cancer, compared with no screening, according to a recent study.
Once-only flexible sigmoidoscopy screening, with or without fecal occult blood testing (FOBT), is associated with reduced colorectal cancer incidence and mortality, according to a study.
A new study adds support to current medical recommendations stating that screening colonoscopy substantially reduced the likelihood of advanced CRC in either the right or left side of the colon being diagnosed in an average-risk adult.
The use of colonoscopy to screen for colorectal cancer may explain the significant decrease in the incidence of that cancer over the past decade. While colonoscopy is now the most common colorectal cancer screening method, evidence has conflicted about how its effectiveness compares with sigmoidoscopy.
Screening linked to reduced incidence in proximal and distal CRC, reduced mortality for distal CRC
The disparities seen in colorectal cancer screening rates appear to be linked not only to racial/ethnic factors but also geography, according to a study of screening status among Medicare enrollees.
Reducing the risk of developing bowel cancer may be possible through the use of a 5-minute screening test, according to a study published in the Lancet.
CT colonography (CTC) has comparable sensitivity to colonoscopy for polyps >5mm, say researchers in Germany.
