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.

Innovative Options for Noninvasive Colorectal Cancer Screening
According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women in the United States. The good news is that colorectal cancer has a 90% survival rate when it's detected in the initial stages. On today's show, get a comprehensive guide to colorectal cancer screening options and an in-depth look at an innovative screening option that might just motivate you to get to the doctor. In a virtual colonoscopy, the doctor does a CT scan to create three images that can show polyps and other abnormalities without actually inserting a camera into your colon through your rectum. With virtual colonoscopies, there is less risk of tears, no sedation and the patient can drive home themselves right after the procedure.

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.

Colon Cancer with Dr. Howard Schecter : MD-VOD
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.

Screening for Colon Cancer
It’s the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. Colon cancer is common in men and women. While symptoms are rare, doctors say there are ways to find and treat the cancer early. Dr. Nick Sharma, a gastroenterologist on staff at Lee Health, says each year 140,000 new patients are diagnosed with colorectal cancer. Of those patients, 50,000 die from the disease. “Colon cancer is uncontrolled growth of tissue within the colon wall. It grows and causes a blockage in the colon and can spread to the rest of the body and cause significant issues.” One in three patients diagnosed die within five years. “In the initial stages of colon polyps and early colon cancer there are no symptoms and that’s why screening is so important,” said Dr. Sharma. As the cancer spreads, patients may experience rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, anemia, or have irregular bowl movements. “Our goal is prevention so we are trying to prevent anybody from getting colon cancer. That’s why we try to screen them early,” said Dr. Sharma. At age 50, men and women are encouraged to have a colonoscopy. Because African Americans are at a higher risk for developing colon cancer doctors recommend early screening at age 45. “If you’re one of those high risk patients with a family history, or had a family member with colon cancer before the age of 60 then you should be checked at age 40 and if you’ve had two family members that have had colon cancer at any age then you should be checked at age 40,” said Dr. Sharma. Colonoscopies are recommended every ten years after 50. “Screening is beneficial because if you can find and remove polyps you can prevent colon cancer. If you can find an early cancer and operate on it you can prevent death,” said Dr. Sharma. If the cancer is found early, doctors recommend surgery to remove it. If the cancer has already started to spread different treatments like chemotherapy and radiation might be used. Finding and treating the cancer early is key.

Colon Cancer a Silent Killer
Colorectal cancer, it's sometimes called a silent killer. By the time a person starts feeling pain, the disease is usually in a late stage. "Colon cancer is the third commonest cancer diagnosed in this country and the second commonest killer of cancer of men and women in this country," says Dr. Nick Sharma, gastroenterologist on Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. That statistic says two things. First: over a quarter million a year in this country are being diagnosed. And secondly: colorectal cancer is proving fatal in many cases, killing more people than breast cancer. When it could have been prevented through early screening. "Colon cancer arises out of colon polyps which are benign. When we screen, we're looking for colon polyps. And if we can remove colon polyps we can hopefully prevent colon cancer," says Dr. Sharma. The colonoscopy is a game-changer in this disease. In a single procedure, doctors can look into your colon with a camera that detect lesions then remove them for biopsy. All in under an hour. "We introduce the scope into your colon. It's a flexible scope that has channels, a light channel, a water channel, a suction channel, and a channel that allows us to introduce instruments through the colonoscope to remove these polyps," says Dr. Sharma. As we age, the risk of colon cancer doubles every decade, which is why a screenings are recommended beginning at age 50; earlier if you have a relative with the disease. "Family history puts you at a much higher risk category so you want to be screened at age 40," says Dr. Sharma. Some people report a change in bowel habits, sudden weight loss or anemia. These can be symptoms of colon cancer. So it's worth having a conversation with your doctor to rule out this silent killer.

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.

What You Need to Know about Colonoscopy Video - Brigham and Women's Hospital
What You Need to Know about Colonoscopy. Jessica Allegretti, MD, MPH, from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, describes colon cancer screening guidelines and what to expect during a colonoscopy, a colon cancer screening exam. A colonoscopy can find lesions before they become problematic and remove them. Guidelines recommend that colon cancer screening begin at age 50 for the average-risk person. People with a family history of colon cancer or other genetic risk factors may start earlier than age 50 based on physician recommendations. The interval between colonoscopies may vary between three and ten years, depending on what's found during a colonoscopy. Most guidelines recommend screening stop between ages 75 and 85. Bowel preparation is one the most important parts of a colonoscopy exam. A clean colon helps physicians see and remove polyps more easily.Preparation includes going on a low fiber diet a week in advance of the procedure and consuming a laxative the day before. During a colonoscopy physicians examine the colon through a long camera with a light. Patients are consciously sedated during the procedure. A colonoscopy generally lasts about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on how clean the colon is and how many polyps are found. At present there is no proven therapy or proven intervention to prevent polyps; however, screening colonoscopies can certainly prevent cancers from happening by detecting and removing polyps.
