DNA Stool Test for Colon Cancer-Mayo Clinic
Research shows that screening for colorectal cancer saves lives. That's because screening can catch cancer early, while it's still curable. But let's face it, having a colonoscopy to look for cancer or precancerous polyps is not fun. Doctors at Mayo Clinic have studied and improved upon a non-invasive screening test that requires no preparation or procedure. The test detects cancer or precancerous polyps by measuring DNA in your stool.

DNA Screening for Colon Cancer
Research Report: DNA Screening for Colon Cancer. It is estimated that colon cancer will kill 50,000 people in the United States this year. But found early, that number could be lowered substantially. So why do so many still die from it? The answer and the solution can be found in a medical laboratory in Cleveland, Ohio. A team of researchers led by Sanford Markowitz, M.D., Ph.D. at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has found a way to detect colon cancer quickly and non-invasively.

Primary care physicians can fill gap in colorectal cancer screening
The number of people who need colonoscopies to screen for colorectal cancer is outpacing the number of endoscopists available to perform them, Medical College of Georgia researchers say. A booming aging population has increased the number of people over 50, the age when the American Cancer Society recommends beginning regular screening for colorectal cancer, the third most common and second most fatal cancer in the United States.

Colon Biopsy
This 3D medical animation shows the removal of a sample of tissue (biopsy) from the colon. A biopsy is usually performed to determine if the cells from a sample of body tissue are abnormal. A major reason to obtain a biopsy is to rule out cancer. Sometimes biopsies are obtained to determine the cause of an unexplained infection, inflammation, swelling, or growth. Item #ANS00189

Myth: You don't need to get screened for colon cancer if there is no family history of colon cancer
Most people with colorectal cancer do not have a family member with the disease. Only 10-20 percent of people that have colorectal cancer have a family member with colorectal cancer. You can still get colon cancer even if no one in your family has ever had it.

Mayo Clinic Study Suggests Improved DNA Stool Test Could Detect Digestive Cancers in Multiple Organs
Mayo Clinic researchers have demonstrated that a noninvasive screening test can detect not only colorectal cancer but also the common cancers above the colon — including pancreas, stomach, biliary and esophageal cancers. This is one of more than 100 Mayo Clinic studies being presented at Digestive Disease Week 2009 in Chicago, May 30June 4. Patients are often worried about invasive tests like colonoscopies, and yet these tests have been the key to early cancer detection and prevention, says David Ahlquist, M.D., Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist and lead researcher on the study. Our research team continues to look for more patient-friendly tests with expanded value, and this new study reveals an opportunity for multi-organ digestive cancer screening with a single noninvasive test. The researchers studied 70 patients with cancers throughout the digestive tract. Besides colon cancer, the study looked at throat, esophagus, stomach, pancreatic, bile duct, gallbladder and small bowel cancers to determine if gene mutations could be detected in stool samples. Using a stool test approach developed at Mayo Clinic, researchers targeted DNA from cells that are shed continuously from the surface of these cancers. Also studied were 70 healthy patients. Stool tests were performed on cancer patients and healthy controls by technicians unaware of sample source. The stool DNA test was positive in over 70 percent of digestive cancers, but remained negative for all healthy controls, thus demonstrating the approachs feasibility. Stool DNA testing detected cancers at each organ site, including 65 percent of esophageal cancers, 62 percent of pancreatic cancers, and 75 percent of bile duct and gallbladder cancers. In this series, 100 percent of both stomach and colorectal cancers were detected. Importantly, stool test results did not differ by cancer stage; early-stage cancers were just as likely to be detected as late-stage cancers.

Debate Over New Guidelines for Breast Cancer Screening
This is the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com An influential group of medical experts released new guidelines on testing for breast cancer on November sixteenth. The guidelines are from the United States Preventive Services Task Force. Its members are appointed by the government but its recommendations are independent. The new guidelines appear in the Annals of Internal Medicine. One of the biggest changes is that the task force now advises against mammograms for most women under fifty years old. In two thousand two the group had suggested such screening tests every one to two years for women forty and older. The new guidelines also say women between fifty and seventy-four should not get mammograms every year as currently advised. The experts now recommend testing every two years for that age group. The task force says the new recommendations are not meant for women who have an increased risk of breast cancer. The experts also say there is not enough evidence to decide about the benefits and harms of testing women seventy-five or older. But the group recommends against teaching women breast self-examination. It says evidence suggests that doing so does not reduce breast cancer deaths. Mistaken test results -- called false positives -- are one problem. But another problem noted by the task force is overdiagnosis. This is when doctors find and possibly treat cancers that would not have shortened a woman's life. Radiation exposure from breast X-rays is another consideration, though the task force says it may be a minor concern. The task force did not suggest one form of mammography over another. It says there is not enough evidence to decide about either digital mammography or magnetic resonance imaging instead of traditional film mammography. Some doctors say the new guidelines will reduce women's chances of needless treatments, invasive tests and harm, including psychological harm. But other doctors say they worry that the changes will reduce testing and lead to more women dying from breast cancer. The American Cancer Society says it will continue to advise women forty and older to have yearly mammograms. But breast cancer expert Susan Love says the new guidelines are similar to those of most other countries. And thats the VOA Special English Health Report.

Gastrointestinal Associates Issues Challenge to Beat Colon Cancer
Colon cancer is the second deadliest cancer. To help beat colon cancer, Gastrointestinal Associates (GIA), a leading GI practice in Knoxville, Tennessee, scheduled GIA Screening Colonoscopy Day for Saturday, Oct. 17. Fifty people referred by the InterFaith Health Clinic and The Free Medical Clinic of America will receive a free colonoscopy exam from the physicians and staff at GIA and The Endoscopy Center. GIA challenges other GI practices across the country to join in making the exams possible for those less able to afford the procedure, and the event is a reminder that screening is the best way to prevent colon cancer. www.gihealthcare.com

Colon Cancer Statistics
In this video, Hans Rosling shows that cancer in the large intestine, i.e. colon, gets more common when countries get richer. The data is compiled by IARC ( International Agency for research on Cancer) in Lyon, France. It reveals that colon cancer is equally common in men and women, that eat similar diets, in high-income countries. Prevention through promotion of health diet have not yet had any big effect but advanced screening programs and improved treatment have decreased the death rate among colon cancer patients in high-income countries. It is paradoxical that high-income leads to a diet that cause this cancer while at the same time only high-income can support a health service that can cure it. Effective prevention could avoid a lot of suffering and save money for health services. http://is.gd/CJKJ - New cases of colon cancer per 100 000 men (with size showing size of population) Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/Dxsu/
