The prevention of invasive cancer of the rectum

Cancer 41(3): 1137-1139
The prevention of invasive cancer of the rectum
The results of the 25+ yr Cancer Detection Center study, including 20,000 participants and 100,000+ patient-yr experience, demonstrate the obviation of appearance of most lower bowel cancers associated with a program of proctosigmoidoscopy and adenomatous polyp removal. Once on a schedule of periodic examinations, study participants developed only a fraction of the anticipated number of rectal cancers. Most of the cancers which developed were detected while at an early stage and with involvement of only the mucosa. Not a single death from lower bowel cancer occurred among active study participants or for 7+ yr following the most recent examination at the Center.
