Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Colon cancer, commonly grouped together with colorectal cancer, is cancer of the large intestine – the final portion of the digestive tract. It is the most common of all gastrointestinal cancers. Colon cancer usually starts from a small growth called a polyp. Polyps are very common, but most polyps do NOT become cancers. Polyps can be of various types, some of which are more likely to develop into malignant tumors than others. Early-stage colon cancer generally produces NO symptoms. Advanced-stage symptoms VARY depending on the location of the tumor, and may include: changes in bowel habits that PERSIST for weeks; blood in stool; abdominal pain and discomfort; constant feeling that the bowel doesn't empty completely; fatigue; and unexplained weight loss. EARLY detection is the key to prevent colon cancer. Because a PRE-cancerous polyp usually takes YEARS to develop into a malignant tumor, colon cancer can be EFFECTIVELY prevented with regular screening. There are 2 major types of screening tests: - Stool-based tests: stool samples are examined for signs of cancer, such as blood and mutated DNA. These tests are NON-invasive but LESS effective and need to be done more often. - VISUAL screening, such as colonoscopy, is more reliable and can be done every 5 or 10 years. Colonoscopy uses a long, flexible tube equipped with a camera and light, to VIEW the entire colon. If polyps or abnormal structures are found, surgical tools are passed through the tube to remove polyps or take tissue samples for analysis. Typically, any polyps found in the colon are removed during colonoscopy and examined for pre-cancerous changes, known as dysplasia. If high-grade dysplasia is detected, a follow-up colonoscopy is required to monitor the condition. Colorectal cancers are caused by MUTATIONS that INcrease the rate of cellular division. Some of these mutations can be INHERITED from parents. Examples of inherited colorectal cancers include: - Familial adenomatous polyposis, or FAP: a condition caused by mutations in the APC gene. The APC protein acts as a tumor SUPPRESSOR, keeping cells from growing and dividing too fast. Mutations in APC result in UNcontrolled cell division, causing HUNDREDS of polyps to grow in the colon. FAP patients usually develop colon cancer by the age of 40. - Lynch syndrome: another inherited condition caused by changes in genes that normally help REPAIR DNA damages. A FAULTY DNA repair results in INcreased rate of mutations. Patients are at high risks of colorectal cancer as well as other types of cancers. In most cases, however, the mutations that lead to cancer are ACQUIRED during a person’s life rather than being inherited. The early event is usually a mutation in the same APC gene that is responsible for FAP. While FAP is a RARE condition, APC mutations are VERY COMMON in SPORADIC colorectal cancers. Apart from genetic predisposition, other risks factors for colon cancer include: aging, high-red meat and low-fiber diets, obesity, alcohol use, smoking, diabetes, and inflammatory intestinal conditions, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

Colorectal Cancer Screening
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.

Colorectal cancer screening test: instructions
Colorectal cancer, or bowel cancer, is the 2nd deadliest cancer in France. As one of the most common forms of cancer, it affects 4 in every 100 men and 3 in every 100 women, mostly over the age of 50. It develops gradually inside the colon and rectum, usually from small lesions called polyps. As they grow, some polyps bleed. Screening can spot traces of blood in stools which are invisible to the naked eye. Screening reduces mortality caused by colorectal cancer. It can detect cancer most often in its early stages, in addition to some precancerous lesions.

Bowel Cancer Screening  - A Patients experience through Bowel Screening and a Colonoscopy
The video you are about to see will show you a typical patient’s experience through the Bowel Screening journey. (Updated June 2017). The Endoscopy unit is a brand new and purpose built which centre’s around the patient’s journey having privacy and dignity zones and male and female segregation. Currently we have 4 clinic’s and 4-5 endoscopy lists a week, all based at the Chesterfield Royal Hospital, covering a population of just over half a million patients within the screening age of 60-74 years As you come through the hospital’s main entrance you should go straight to the main reception to check in – you will be directed to the correct clinic from there. When you arrive at the clinic you will see a big white board telling you where your screening nurse is - just take a seat outside the room; the screening nurse will be expecting you. The screening nurse will check your name, date of birth, address and contact number before asking a series of questions about your health, medications you may be taking and questions about your bowels. You will then be shown a series of slides to illustrate what a polyp looks like before being told in details how to take the laxative to clear your bowel prior to the test. The screening nurse will then go through the timings of when you need to take the laxative. First of all you need to remove one of the packets from the box at the time stated in the instructions. Mix packets A and B together with a litre of tap water. You must drink a glass of the laxative every 15 minutes alongside half a litre of clear fluids. Avoid taking any medication an hour before, whilst drinking the laxative, and for an hour afterwards. Remember to stay close to a toilet when you start drinking the laxative. On arrival for your colonoscopy don’t go the main reception, instead go straight to the endoscopy department and report to the endoscopy reception. You may be with us for 2 to 3 hours so if you are being picked up, make sure they are aware of this. You will have your details checked on arrival. Your details will be checked by the endoscopy nurse with your blood pressure before you get ready for your test. To ensure your privacy and dignity is respected, designated male and female changing areas are provided for you to get changed into a gown. When you are changed the endoscopy nurse will come and insert a cannula, leaving a small plastic tube in place ready for the test. One of the nurses from the endoscopy room room will come and collect you and you will be walked into the endoscopy room, where the screening practitioner and screening colonoscopist will be present with endoscopy nurses. The test normally takes around 30-45 minutes on average but can take longer if a number of samples need to be collected. Gas and air is available as an alternative to sedation. Your comfort levels will be monitored throughout, some patients find the gas and air useful alongside the sedation Once your colonoscopy is over you will be taken to either the male or female recovery bay, where you will have your blood pressure re-checked and the cannula removed. You will be offered a warm drink and a biscuit before you get dressed. Once you are fit for discharge the recovery nurse will walk you down to the discharge area. If you have had sedation you will need someone to take you home and stay with you for at least the next 12 hours. The endoscopy nurse will discuss your test and you will be given written information and after care. The screening nurse will call you the next working day to check your ID before asking how you are, and give you the opportunity to ask any further questions. Any follow up required will also be discussed. I hope that you have found the information contained within this video useful, if you have any further questions then please call us on 01246 512197.

Al le prometió a la Dra. Williams que completaría la prueba-FIT. Cuando los resultados salieron positivos, se le hizo una colonoscopía en donde los médicos descubrieron que tenía cáncer de colon, Etapa I.

Since Robert’s dad got colorectal cancer at age 45, when Robert went for his annual checkup, he asked his own doctor about getting screened. He got a screening test called a colonoscopy, a test that can show the whole colon and the best kind of test for Robert because of his family cancer history. The colonoscopy showed he had cancer. “People tell me that they are scared to get screened, but I think it’s scarier if you have a tumor that the doctor can’t remove,” Robert said. “If I hadn’t been screened, I wouldn’t have been able to see my son go off to college, or enjoy this next chapter of my life with my wife and family.” What You Can Do: • If you’re 50 to 75 years old, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. If you’re younger than 50 and think you may be at high risk of getting colorectal cancer, or if you’re older than 75, ask your doctor if you should be screened. • Be physically active. • Keep a healthy weight. • Don’t drink too much alcohol. • Don’t smoke. Fast Facts: • Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. • Risk increases with age. More than 90% of colorectal cancers occur in people aged 50 and older. • Precancerous polyps and colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at first. You could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. That is why having a screening test is so important. If you have symptoms, they may include: - Blood in or on the stool (bowel movement). - Stomach pain, aches, or cramps that do not go away. - Losing weight and you don’t know why. These symptoms may be caused by something other than cancer. If you have any of them, see your doctor. • There are several screening test options. Talk with your doctor about which is right for you.
