Germany: Colonoscopy prevents 15,000 cancer cases

to cancer within a particular period of time. In addition, the calculation takes account of other factors such as the percentage of screening participants who die of other causes before cancer occurs and the participation rate in the respective age groups.

The investigators calculated the number of cancer cases prevented for each year individually and accumulated the values. Although the number of advanced adenomas discovered remains nearly constant over the years, the rate of cancer cases prevented rises each year, since many of the adenomas discovered and removed would otherwise have become cancerous several years later.

The yearly participation rate in colonoscopy screening has remained almost constant since 2003 at about four percent of eligible women and three percent of eligible men. Participants with inconspicuous examination results are offered a second examination free of charge after ten years. Thus, the total participation rate among those under 70, projected to the ten years between first and second screening colonoscopy, is 40 percent among women and 30 percent among men. "This is not bad for a beginning," says Hermann Brenner, "but if we succeeded in encouraging even more people to participate in the screening program such as by sending personal invitations to examinations due many more cancers could be prevented."
