Colon Cancer Detection Tests:

The colon or large intestine is the last portion of gastro intestinal tract which ends in the rectum. Colon cancer is a frequent cause of death and is a frequent late-onset disorder that mostly occur at the age of 50 or above. As with other forms of cancer, Colon cancer is common in the people with the family history of colon cancer. Along with genetic susceptibility, various dietary and environmental factors play a major role in deregulating cellular profliferation and cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol intake are some of those factors that play a major role. Early screening may lead to prevention and medication of colon cancer. There are two major ways for screening of colon cancer: Fecal Occult Blood Testing and endoscopy. Fecal Occult Blood Testing is the first way to screen for colon cancer. It detects bleeding from polyps i.e. the cancer which is too small to be visible. It is also known as stool test cards or "Hem occult" cards. This test may lad to early detection and has reduced the death rate by around 33% in several test studies. It may sometimes gives false negative results as all the polyps are not recognized while screening. Endoscopy, the second method to screen for colon polyps and cancer, refers to the visual examination of the interior of a hollow body organ by useing an endoscope. Studies have shown that the method of colonoscopy is more accurate than annual FOBT or sigmoidoscopy for detecting polyps and cancer because it examines the entire colon. It is however preferred in higher risk cases.
