Patients are checks for colon cancer with a process called comfortable SIGMOIDOSCOPY show no important decrease in risk in excess of seven existences and the show did appear to inferior risk of disappearing from the disease and this disease is affected on your personality and health. And in this Screening are used for various methods just like colonoscopy, cancerous polyps and many more.
“Flexible sigmoidoscopy screening looks promising, but the effect on a population level appears less than expected and further follow-up is required,” said lead researcher Dr. Geir Hoff.
“The results suggest that flexible sigmoidoscopy screening may be a very efficient way of screening with an aim of reducing mortality and the risk of getting colorectal cancer, but the effect may be less than anticipated and certainly occurs later than expected in the follow-up period,” Hoff added.
“Still, colonoscopy is recommended in several European countries and the U.S.,” he added.
“A major reason for non-compliance to screening is that people are not convinced that there is ‘anything in it for them,’” Hoff said. “Being able to quantify an effect to present potential screening participants requires randomized trials like this one. The study illustrates the need for randomized population screening trials before recommending widespread use of screening.”
“These are early results. They show some promising findings,” Imperiale said, but “we would not yet expect to see a reduction in colorectal cancer.”
“There are options, which is good,” Imperiale said. “The bottom line is that people should do something. What they do depends on their preferences and their risk, but they should do something — do a test.”
“One of the questions is, is seven years too short a window? If they look at this again in another four or five years will the difference be statistically significant?”
“because it is lot more available and less expensive than trying to screen everyone with colonoscopy. Flexible sigmoidoscopy is one of the methods recommended for screening by all of the major organizations.” Via
