While overall numbers for Colon Cancer going down, instances of it in men under 50 are actually going up. In 2017, large study of invasive colorectal cancers, Fund by ACS and published in Journal of National Cancer Institute, found that people born around 1990 have double risk of developing Colon Cancer and quadruple risk of developing rectal Cancer compared with those born around 1950. This prompted ACS to lower its recommended screening Age for Colorectal cancers 50 to 45. Concept Here Is That With Early Cancer, You Will Find Trace Amounts Of Blood In Sample, Says Dr. Pochapin. If FIT test is positive, patient must get colonoscopy relatively soon to make sure there isnt cancer causing positive test. FIT testing looks for early cancer, since it isnt very good at finding polyps, and that is why it is more of cancer detection test than cancer prevention test, like colonoscopy.

As seen on KCRW :

Last week, death of Hollywood actor Chadwick Boseman sent shock waves through world of entertainment. Beloved Star Of Black Panther Died From Colon Cancer On Friday At Young Age Of 43. Supremely talented Boseman, who also portrayed James Brown in biopic Get on Up, and Thurgood Marshall in eponymous Marshall, succeeded in keeping his illness private until his passing. He had been diagnosed with Stage III colon Cancer back in 2016, and battled as it Progress to Stage IV, according to his Twitter account. Bosemans death underscores troubling racial disparity-colon Cancer kills African Americans at higher rate than any other race in America. According to American Cancer Society, colorectal Cancer is third most common cancer among African Americans-with close to 20 000 Black people diagnosed in 2019 alone. CRC also kill approximately 7 100 Blacks in 2019, representing 10 percentage of all deaths among population. American Society For Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Notes That Both Diagnosis And Death Rates From CRC Are Higher Among African Americans Than Any Other Population In United States. In fact, while overall rate of mortality for CRC has dropped since early 2000s, mortality rate remains appreciably higher for Blacks juxtaposed with white counterparts. African-Americans are more likely to get colon Cancer, Theyre more likely to have advanced stage of disease when theyre are diagnosed with colon Cancer, Theyre more likely to die from colon Cancer and they have shorter survival after diagnosis with colon Cancer, state Fola May, assistant professor of medicine at UCLA and researcher at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center via KCRW Interview. One big factor for disparity in CRC deaths-and Cancer deaths in general among Blacks-is socioeconomic. Research shows that screening, particularly colonoscopy, is linked with reduced risk of dying from CRC. Study Which Appear In JAMA Found That African Americans And People Of Low Socioeconomic Status Have Lowest Rates Of CRC Screening. Lower screening rates equate to odds of disease being diagnosed in late stage. Another problem, and perhaps pertinent to Boseman, appears to be genetic relate and location base. That is, blacks are more likely to develop cancerous growth on right side of their colon-which is relevant because flexible sigmoidoscopy, procedure often used to screen for CRC-only allows physicians to identify tumors on left side. Reason For This, According To Study Conducted By Cleveland Clinic, May Be Attributable To Unusually Early Mutations In BRAF Gene In Blacks, Which Is Associated With Development Of Right-side Tumors. Augment risk of CRC diagnosis death in African Americans has lead to changes in screening recommendations in this population. Black people are urged to undergo colonscopic screening at age of 45. Whats troubling is, blacks also have lower rate of screening compliance, which makes it imperative to emphasize preventative cancer measures, and improve access to them.

Other diseases dont stop

From March through June, all elective procedures in Hospitals across Philadelphia region come to halt to make room for potential surge of acutely ill COVID-19 patients. That meant procedures such as colonoscopies, already challenge to access for low-income people of color, were even to get. Other diseases do stop they wait because of COVID, said James Walter, gastroenterologist at Einstein Medical Center. That short period of time where elective procedures have to be delayed for public health reasons will certainly impact patients in ways we dont entirely know. Steven J. McClane is head of surgery at Cooper University Hospitals MD Anderson Cancer Center. From April to July, he saw about third of patients he usually does for colorectal surgery. Normally, those patients referred to him after theyve been screened for something that needs to be remove. Unfortunately, what is going to happen is these patients are going to be found later and have more advanced cancers, McClane say. Friedenberg estimates that Temple roughly 437 non-emergency colonoscopies month, meaning nearly 2 000 were canceled due to suspension of elective procedures. With hospital as busy as it is again, he says its hard to imagine how theyll ever catch up.
