ASGE Applauds News of Drop in Colorectal Cancer Deaths
Date:10/15/2007

th diagnostic and therapeutic. Not only does colonoscopy allow us to see the entire colon, but it also allows us to remove polyps before they turn into cancer. This news is wonderful because it reaffirms that colorectal cancer screening saves lives. So don't delay, talk to your doctor about getting screened for colorectal cancer."

Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and women and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, killing nearly 56,000 people each year. Many of those deaths could be prevented with earlier detection. The five-year relative survival rate for people whose colorectal cancer is treated in an early stage is greater than 90 percent. Unfortunately, only 39 percent of colorectal cancers are found at that early stage. Once the cancer has spread to nearby organs or lymph nodes, the five-year relative survival rate decreases dramatically.

ASGE screening guidelines recommend that, beginning at age 50, asymptomatic men and women at average risk for developing colorectal cancer should have a colonoscopy every 10 years. People with risk factors, such as a family history of colon cancer, should begin at an earlier age. Patients are advised to discuss their risk factors with their physician to determine when to begin routine colorectal cancer screening and how often they should be screened.
