Visit http://empowerme.tv/md-vod/ for Full Episodes, Photos, and More! Not counting skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer found in men and women in this country. Thanks to colorectal cancer screening, polyps can be found earlier when it is easier to cure, and the death rate from this cancer has been going down for the past 15 years. Still, the risk of a man having colorectal cancer in his lifetime is about 1 in 19; for women it is about 1 in 20. As we do with every illness we'll help explain in simple terms what Colon cancer is, who is at risk and what the dangers are, and what are the symptoms. So join us as we simplify what you need to know about Colon cancer here on MD VOD, your health live and on demand. Colon and rectal cancers begin in the digestive system, or GI system, short for gastrointestinal system. This is where food is processed to create energy and rid the body of solid waste matter. In order to understand colorectal cancer, it helps to know something about the structure of the digestive system and how it works. After food is chewed and swallowed, it travels to the stomach. There it is partly broken down and sent to the small intestine. The word "small" refers to the width of the small intestine. In fact, the small intestine is the longest part of the digestive system — about 20 feet long. The small intestine also breaks down the food and absorbs most of the nutrients and then leads to the large intestine (also called the large bowel or colon), a muscular tube about five feet long. The colon absorbs water and nutrients from the food and also serves as a storage place for waste matter. The waste matter (stool) moves from the colon into the rectum, the last six inches of the digestive system. From there the waste passes out of the body through the opening called the anus. *****This video contains healthcare information only, not medical advice.***** Host, Dr. John Kennedy, MD, FACC is the Director of Preventive Cardiology and Wellness, Marina Del Rey Hospital, Marina Del Rey, California.

Colon cancer can be cured if it and pre-cancerous polyps are caught early. But doctors at Mayo Clinic say only half of all people at risk of colon cancer get screened for the disease. That's because some people don't know they should be screened and others simply don't want to undergo colonoscopy. But a new test developed at Mayo Clinic makes the screening process a whole lot easier. It's called virtual colonoscopy or CT colonography.

How are cancers diagnosed? When a doctor suspects that a patient may have cancer, they will order initial tests, depending on exactly what is suspected, in order to further investigate their concern. They will then refer their patient to the relevant specialty doctor. If a suspicious lesion is seen on a scan or other investigation, a tissue sample, also known as a biopsy, needs to be taken in order to see under the microscope whether the tissue is indeed cancerous. A team of clinicians involved in the care will meet and discuss the case - this is known as a multi-disciplinary meeting or MDT. MDTs often contain physicians, histopathologists (who look at biopsy samples to give a tissue diagnosis), radiologists (who look at scans to stage cancers), surgeons, oncologists and specialist nurses.

We worked with a group of leading clinical oncologists to develop a comprehensive program on screening for colon, breast, cervical, and prostate cancer. The message is aimed at general practitioners and their patients. This project is one of our largest undertakings so far. The cervical cancer CD-ROM alone features over 30 minutes of animation in a dual-audience, multi-media, multi-language educational program with a total runtime of over 3 hours. The CD-ROM is now being used by the UK's National Health Service and has been distributed to over 10,000 physicians.

Research teams led by Mayo Clinic have demonstrated that stool DNA testing may be useful for detection of premalignant dysplasia in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The findings were presented at Digestive Disease Week 2010, the annual meeting of the American Gastroenterological Association. David Ahlquist, M.D., a gastroenterologist with Mayo Clinic and the senior investigator, said that sensitive stool DNA test methods developed at Mayo Clinic can detect common forerunners of colorectal cancer. Detection of precursor lesions during screening is essential if cancer prevention is the goal, Dr. Ahlquist says. Compared to widely used fecal blood tests, stool DNA testing has higher detection rates for curable stage colorectal cancer and for common precancerous polyps (called adenomas). The study, presented on May 3 at Digestive Disease Week, involves identifying both cancer and a precancerous lesion, called dysplasia, in people who suffer from IBD. In a blinded study with 10 cases and 10 controls done in conjunction with Mount Sinai Medical Center and the University of Chicago, researchers found that stool DNA testing was positive in nine out of 10 cases (five of five with cancer, and four of five with dysplasia). This study shows that cancer and pre-cancer in IBD can be detected noninvasively, says Dr. Ahlquist. The 90 percent detection rate by stool DNA testing is remarkable. Its important for people with IBD because they are at much higher risk for colorectal cancer than the general population. Given the limitations of colonoscopies in detecting these lesions, stool DNA testing could play a complementary role to improve the effectiveness of cancer surveillance.

Developed and produced by http://www.MechanismsinMedicine.com Animation description: Screening programs aim to identify individuals with cancers at an earlier stage and allow for treatment before growth and spread has occurred. It also allows for detection of pre-cancerous growths such as polyps before the cancer has even developed. Several screening techniques for colon cancer have been used. As cancers grow they may bleed. Small amounts of blood are not necessarily visible within the stool. Testing stool samples for occult blood may indicate the presence of a cancer within the colon. Several trials have shown benefit from the use of this test as a screening tool. This test should be part of a regular exam however it will only detect cancers within the reach of the examining finger [cancers of the mid and lower rectum] Modern scopes have had several improvements. They are thinner and more flexible with better fibre optics allowing sharper images. In addition the instruments allow the use of additional devices for a variety of functions such as snares for polypectomies, forceps for biopsies and other injection devices. Flexible sigmoidoscopes are 60 cm long and are able to detect about 65% of all polyps. Upon the discovery of an adenoma, a colonoscopy is usually required to evaluate the proximal bowel. Case control studies have shown benefit in terms of reduced colon cancer mortality and incidence however they only evaluate the distal end of the colon. A colonoscopy is the gold standard in terms of screening. A scope enters the rectum and is extended through the entire colon. This test will identify almost all cancers and most pre-malignant polyps. It also allows for the removal of smaller growths. This test only has to be repeated every 5-10 years if no polyps are present. Virtual colonoscopy is a new technique that uses computed tomographic or magnetic resonance images to produce computer-generated images of the colon. Patients still require bowel prep and have air insufflated into their colons. In experienced hands, this test is as good as colonoscopy in detecting cancers and larger polyps.

Version Française - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=300eNqjITBE Colorectal cancer screening can save lives, but not enough people are getting screened. The Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) is a simple, first-step test that looks for blood in your poo. This instructional video will walk you through the steps of the FOBT test to help keep you happy and healthy! If you'd like to take this test, ask your doctor or call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000. Don't take this test until 3 days after you have stopped menstruating, bleeding from hemorrhoids, bleeding from dental work, or having blood in your urine (e.g. from infection).
