Screening and surveillance for colorectal carcinoma
Screening and surveillance examinations are effective in lowering colorectal cancer risk. Screening tests have been demonstrated to reduce colorectal cancer mortality. Colonoscopic removal of adenomatous polyps has been determined to reduce colorectal cancer incidence. High-risk individuals and their family members should be identified and offered more aggressive recommendations for appropriate screening and surveillance guidelines. Colorectal cancer screening strategies are in an acceptable range of cost effectiveness.
