The FIT or (fecal immunochemical test) is easy to use, can be done at home, and according to an evidence review published in the Annals of Internal Medicine will detect most colorectal cancers. The new research conducted by Kaiser Permanente finds that, on average, FIT will detect four out of five cancers, and will also correctly identify about 94 percent of people who don't have cancer. FIT should be done annually and is one of several ways to screen for colon cancer. Other options include a sigmoidoscopy which examines the lower part of the colon, or a colonoscopy which examines the entire colon to look for polyps and cancer. This video includes interviews with the authors of the new evidence review: Elizabeth Liles, MD, MCR, practicing physician with the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Portland, Oregon. Jeffrey Lee, MD, MAS, post-doctoral researcher with the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland and the University of California, San Francisco.

Colon cancer claims over 50,000 lives in the US every year, but early detection can make a difference. In this Health Watch, Karim Alavi, MD, Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery, shares an overview of at home screening kits that make it easy to test for colorectal cancer without the dreaded prep of colonoscopy.

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. At age 50, it is recommended for those with average risk of colon cancer to get a colonoscopy . However, a colonoscopy isn’t something most look forward to. But some products claim they can detect colon cancer with a simple test at home. Chances are you’ve seen the commercial for Cologuard. Analyzing both blood and altered DNA in your stool, Cologuard – a product of Exact Sciences – claims to find cancer and pre-cancer in a stool sample you take at home – it’s not meant to replace colonoscopies. “Colonoscopies are the preferred way to go at this,” said Dr. Steven Condron with Avera Medical Group Gastroenterology But Avera Gastroenterologist Dr. Condron says Cologuard is just one more way to get patients screened. “So trying to get these things off is interrupting the cancer sequence. So I consider colonoscopies cancer prevention as well as detection. Whereas you look at a lot of these tests people are doing like the fit kits or Cologuard, and those are cancer detection. And I think if you can interrupt the sequence prior to it becoming cancerous, you’re ahead of the game,” said Dr. Condron. President and CEO of Exact Sciences, Kevin Conroy, says Cologuard’s goal is to get more patients screened. “We know breast cancer screening, about 80% compliance -- cervical cancer screening, about 80% compliance -- colon cancer screening, only about 50% compliance. There’s a huge difference there and the difference is that it’s really hard for some physicians to get their patients to actually get screened. And as a company, Exact Sciences is committed to helping the physician make it a lot easier on getting the patient screened,” said Conroy. Dr. Karen Simon with Ventura County Gastroenterology in California was an investigator for Cologuard’s clinical study. She explains what happens if the test comes back positive. “That means it’s very likely that something abnormal is being shed in the stool and that needs to be furthered investigated. So it is recommended that those patients will follow up with a colonoscopy. And if it finds an abnormality or indicates that there’s very likely an abnormality for this patient, it’s going to probably be that much more easy to convince that patient to undergo a colonoscopy,” said Dr. Simon. “This little thing you’re seeing right here is – blends in very effectively with the underlying colonic tissue. And these things can – the small things can be overlooked and you say ‘well, go ahead and go 10 years; this thing isn’t cancer,’ but it could potentially turn into one in five or seven, 10 years we think,” said Dr. Condron. Dr. Condron strongly believes getting a colonoscopy is the gold standard in colorectal screening. “On this part of the colon, the evolving thinking is these things do have cancerous potential down the road -- so we want to get that removed. Certainly doing a test like fecal immunohistochemical testing or the Cologuard would not have found this. The only way we would have ever picked this polyp up is to directly look for it. Even at that, it’s hard to see. Everybody has this idea that this is a scary process. It’s not. You can see, she slept right through it. As long as you’re doing it with somebody who does a lot of them and they’re cared for in the right way, it’s an incredibly safe procedure. But if a patient is hesitant, I have no problem considering a DNA-based test like Cologuard, or fecal immunohistochemical testing, virtual colonoscopy, even a barium enema. I don’t prefer those tests but I certainly would take that over the patient saying I’m just going to wait for there to become a problem,” said Dr. Condron. Dr. Condron says any screening is better than no screening. But if you do have a history of colon cancer in your family, you are at higher risk of developing colon cancer; tests like Cologuard are only recommended for those with average risk. Again, age 50 is when you’re supposed to get your first colonoscopy and every 10 years thereafter based on your results. But, if you have a primary relative – mom, dad, brother, or sister who was diagnosed with colon cancer before age 50, it’s recommended you have your first colonoscopy 10 years before their diagnosis. For example, if your father was 45 when he was diagnosed, you should get your first colonoscopy at 35.

Transcript: DOCTOR: Chances are, you know of someone who’s had colon cancer. If you’re over the age of 50, your risk of colon cancer goes up. In fact, colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death. But there’s good news. Colon cancer can be prevented. And when it’s caught early, it can be cured 90% of the time. WOMAN: How can it be caught early? DOCTOR: You may have heard about colonoscopies, but there’s another option: an easy-to-use stool test you take at home, once a year. MAN: How does it work? DOCTOR: Well, let’s see how colon cancer starts. Tiny growths called polyps appear in the colon. Early on, there are no symptoms, but left untreated, these polyps can grow and turn into cancer. These polyps release tiny amounts of blood that are invisible to the eye. This accurate stool test looks for blood in your bowel movement, when there is still time to cure and even prevent colon cancer. We’ll explain how to use it. You can do the test at home in your bathroom. Just follow the instructions that come with the test. DOCTOR: Use the stick or brush that comes with the kit to collect a sample. Put the sample on the card that comes with the kit. Repeat as instructed. Then just return the kit by mail or to your doctor’s office. MAN: That sounds easy! DOCTOR: And it could save your life. WOMAN: What if the test finds blood? DOCTOR: If there’s blood, then you’ll need a colonoscopy to find the cause: it could be polyps, cancer, or something else. During a colonoscopy polyps can be removed before they turn into cancer. But let’s start with this simple stool test! DOCTOR: Talk to your doctor or medical provider to get your stool test kit. All insurance plans cover it. To find out more, go to: www.mass.gov/cancerscreenings
