Published On:November 28, 2018
Latest study held in Washington D.C. situated in USA examined the screening that is done in order to cure colorectal cancer, and the results proved that screening has positive impacts on the males while the women do not benefit from the process at all. Colorectal is the third most occurring cancer in the world. There are almost three thousand cases of colorectal reported annually out of which about twelve hundred people lose their life because of it. The results of the report are considered to be very necessary in today’s healthcare sector and were published in the British Journal of Surgery. The screening programme was held in Finland between the years 2004 and 2016, the main motive of the screening was to figure out a solution to fight against the third most common form of cancer. The study was carried on people belonging to the age group of 60 to 69 years, and the process of testing faecal occult blood was carried on the subjects while the patients who result in positive for blood were called colonoscopy. The first research that made use of screening method was discontinued in the year 2016 as it depicted no major reduction in the mortality rate. But some of the doctors from the Finnish Cancer Registry and the Helsinki University Hospital wanted to see if the screening had any result on the patients suffering from colorectal cancer. Dr. Laura Koskenvuo explained that none of the screening research have shown any change in the mortality rate but has proved to have different impacts on the patients, the main aim of the research was to find some easier treatment options for the patients so that they can avoid intense forms of treatment. The researchers referred to the data of about 1400 victims of colorectal cancer. The results of the people who participated in the screening made it very clear that the removal of tumor was the most effective way to treat than trying to control the tumors. A Gastrointestinal surgeon Dr. Ville Sallinen stated that the people from the control group went under emergency surgeries more 50 percent and suffered from 40 percent incomplete removals of the tumor than the people from the screening group. After a deeper analysis of the results the researchers realized that the positive impacts were only visible in the male patients and not in the females therefore they have decided to examine the female patients with new screening techniques in the future.
