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.

How to Self Screen for Colon Cancer|alternatives to colonoscopy for colon cancer screening
How to Self Screen for Colon Cancer|alternatives to colonoscopy for colon cancer screening Colon cancer is the third most common cancer. However, there are excellent screening tests available and, when caught early, colon cancer is able to be treated and cured in 90% of all cases.[1] This is why following through with the recommended screening is so important. See your family doctor to learn how to self-screen for colon cancer via the at-home stool test, which is recommended every one to two years for people over the age of 50. Though colon screenings performed by trained doctors are always best, an at-home test is better than nothing and could point out issues that you'll need to address. 1 Evaluate your level of risk for colon cancer.[2] Everyone is eligible for colon cancer screening beginning at the age of 50; however, if you have a family history of colon cancer, or a personal history of inflammatory bowel disease (such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, both of which increase your risk of developing colon cancer) you may be eligible to begin screening earlier. Don't wait to discuss this with your doctor — even if you are still young, it is important to notify your doctor if you have any risk factors. See your doctor at age 50 to begin self-screening, and earlier if you believe you have additional risk factors (in which case your doctor will let you know at what age you are eligible to begin). 2 Obtain the testing package.[3] The first thing you will need to do in order to self-screen for colon cancer is to obtain the at-home stool testing package. You will need to visit your family doctor to obtain this, and she will explain the procedure to you during this visit as well. One stool test is called the Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT). This looks for blood in your stool that is not visible to the naked eye. It is the most commonly used self-screening test for colon cancer.[4] Another stool test option is called the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT). This is almost the same as FOBT, except instead of detecting blood via heme it detects it via antibodies directed at human hemoglobin.[5] The final self-screening stool test option is called Cologuard. This evaluates both for the presence of blood in the stool, as well as for DNA that has been correlated to a higher risk for colon cancer.[6] It is quite new and therefore not currently recommended as the standard of care; however, studies indicate that the new Cologuard test could potentially have a greater ability to detect colon cancer than either the FOBT or the FIT tests. 3 Collect the required number of stool samples. Once you have the package at home with you, you are ready to begin testing at the time of your next bowel movement. Take note of how many stool samples you will need. Some self-screening packages request three samples, often each the size of a smear on a piece of toilet paper. Others ask for only one sample, but it may require the whole bowel movement to be packaged and sent into the lab. One way to collect bowel samples more easily is to place a piece of plastic wrap over the toilet bowl, allowing it to hang just above the water level.[7] After your bowel movement, you can then collect the stool sample (in the required amount) before flushing the rest down the toilet. Ensure that no urine contaminates your stool sample. SUBSCRIBE TO MORE VIDEOS

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.
