Example text

Essentially all current programs recommend that surveillance be performed with colonoscopy in those who have had adenomatous polyps [21, 50]. However, little work has been done in the area of the use of alternative means of surveillance. Importantly, many studies have revealed that interval screening with repeat colonoscopy is typically performed (inappropriately) too often [52–55].

In the USA, current guidelines are that any individual above the age of 50 should be offered screening for colorectal cancer. These recommendations are based on multiple factors, including the population prevalence and incidence of CRC, the associated morbidity and mortality, and the costs trade-offs between the burden of the disease and the costs of screening tests and programs. There are, of course, stipulations to this recommendation. For example, patients 2 Colorectal Cancer Screening Tests and Recommendations with underlying serious life-threatening diseases may not be good candidates for screening, not only because the screening test itself could harm the patient (such as with colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy), but also because the patient’s outcome may not be affected by the finding of a CRC should it be identified through screening.
