Prevention of colon cancer in primary care practice.

Abstract:

:Colorectal cancer is a common disease with a high mortality rate. Surgical resection in early stages is the only effective treatment, therefore, recent attention is focused on diagnosing early colon cancer by screening asymptomatic subjects. Principles and current technology supporting early detection of colorectal cancer are critically evaluated. Current guidelines for screening average risk asymptomatic subjects and high-risk groups are discussed.
