The importance of Flexible Sigmoidoscopy Screening in colorectal cancer prevention

   911

The Lancet - A group of english researchers examined the magnitude and duration of effect of a single flexible sigmoidoscopy screening, between ages 55 years and 64 years, on colorectal cancer incidence and mortality. Results showed that a single flexible sigmoidoscopy continues to provide substantial protection from colorectal cancer diagnosis and death, with protection lasting at least 17 years.
