The incidence rate is the highest in the 40-50 age group, with a male to female ratio of 2 to 3: 1. The incidence is the third in gastrointestinal tumors.

Colon cancer is mainly adenocarcinoma, mucinous adenocarcinoma and undifferentiated carcinoma. The general shape is polypoid, ulcer type and so on.

 

Colon cancer can circulate along the intestinal wall, spread up and down along the longitudinal diameter of the intestinal tube or infiltrate deep into the intestinal wall.

In addition to lymphatic vessels, blood flow and local invasion, it can also be implanted into the abdominal cavity or spread along the suture and incision.

Patients with chronic colitis, colon polyps, and male obesity are susceptible.

How to choose Colorectal Cancer screening method?

Screening options for general-risk groups (ie, no family history or medical history of polyps, colon cancer, or inflammatory bowel disease, and no history of abdominal radiotherapy or prostate cancer radiotherapy in children) include colonoscopy, virtual colonoscopy, and stool examination.

 

Risk Factors of Colon cancer

Colonoscopy is the gold standard for screening colorectal cancer, and it is recommended to be done every ten years.

A colonoscopy doctor can view the inside of the colon and remove polyps or abnormal tissue for further detection.

Another less invasive option is virtual colonoscopy, or colon CT scan, which is recommended every five years.

However, if polyps are detected, colonoscopy is still required.

 

Other options include stool DNA testing, which should be done every three years. It is recommended to have a stool blood test once a year.

Colony cancer population should have a colonoscopy every five years, preferably not using other screening methods.

For those with a family history of colorectal cancer, it is recommended to start screening at the age of 40 or 5 years before the diagnosis of the family.

People with IBD should start screening after 8 years of illness.
