increase in Americans, morning. A new study shows that
increase in Americans,
younger than 50 being diagnosed increase in Americans,
younger than 50 being diagnosed
with colorectal cancer. The younger than 50 being diagnosed
with colorectal cancer. The
incidence of colon cancer is with colorectal cancer. The
incidence of colon cancer is
increasing among incidence of colon cancer is
increasing among
patients younger, then the increasing among
patients younger, then the
traditional screening age which patients younger, then the
traditional screening age which
is 50 years old. traditional screening age which
is 50 years old.
So joining me now to discuss is 50 years old.
So joining me now to discuss
this new report is doctor So joining me now to discuss
this new report is doctor
Alexander crane, he’s a this new report is doctor
Alexander crane, he’s a
colonoscopy surgeon with Alexander crane, he’s a
colonoscopy surgeon with
Memorial Hospital appreciate colonoscopy surgeon with
Memorial Hospital appreciate
you coming in or you know when Memorial Hospital appreciate
you coming in or you know when
we talk about this either you you coming in or you know when
we talk about this either you
listen to doctor doctor we talk about this either you
listen to doctor doctor
recommends get it at 50 to 50. listen to doctor doctor
recommends get it at 50 to 50.
So you do. recommends get it at 50 to 50.
So you do.
But in many cases you can So you do.
But in many cases you can
detect things not come out and But in many cases you can
detect things not come out and
not have to worry about them detect things not come out and
not have to worry about them
much earlier, yeah that’s not have to worry about them
much earlier, yeah that’s
that’s right on the you know much earlier, yeah that’s
that’s right on the you know
the whole goal of cost is to that’s right on the you know
the whole goal of cost is to
really prevent colon cancer are the whole goal of cost is to
really prevent colon cancer are
currently. really prevent colon cancer are
currently.
>>So if you go in there and currently.
>>So if you go in there and
identify what’s called a>>So if you go in there and
identify what’s called a
precancerous lesion or a polyp identify what’s called a
precancerous lesion or a polyp
that can be removed by the precancerous lesion or a polyp
that can be removed by the
person with the colonoscopy and that can be removed by the
person with the colonoscopy and
you never have to worry about person with the colonoscopy and
you never have to worry about
it down the line you never have to worry about
it down the line
so who should be screened at it down the line
so who should be screened at
this earlier age of maybe 45. so who should be screened at
this earlier age of maybe 45.
So it’s instant some of the this earlier age of maybe 45.
So it’s instant some of the
guidelines are changing there So it’s instant some of the
guidelines are changing there
was a recent study that was guidelines are changing there
was a recent study that was
funded by the National Cancer was a recent study that was
funded by the National Cancer
Institute that looked at colon funded by the National Cancer
Institute that looked at colon
cancer in people under 50 and Institute that looked at colon
cancer in people under 50 and
they’re seeing that there’s cancer in people under 50 and
they’re seeing that there’s
been a rise over about the last they’re seeing that there’s
been a rise over about the last
15 years. been a rise over about the last
15 years.
So they may need to bump the 15 years.
So they may need to bump the
age to 45 and that it went from So they may need to bump the
age to 45 and that it went from
10% to 12% was small small age to 45 and that it went from
10% to 12% was small small
talking about lives and these 10% to 12% was small small
talking about lives and these
are individuals actually talk talking about lives and these
are individuals actually talk
about the population to percent are individuals actually talk
about the population to percent
increased is a big number, but about the population to percent
increased is a big number, but
you know that’s the people that increased is a big number, but
you know that’s the people that
were in the study, not looking you know that’s the people that
were in the study, not looking
at the whole population, were in the study, not looking
at the whole population,
one of the issues is that it at the whole population,
one of the issues is that it
will insurance cover this that one of the issues is that it
will insurance cover this that
that young great that is the will insurance cover this that
that young great that is the
question because some of the that young great that is the
question because some of the
guidelines that recommend 50 question because some of the
guidelines that recommend 50
and some are starting to change guidelines that recommend 50
and some are starting to change
the 45 that’s the American and some are starting to change
the 45 that’s the American
Cancer Society and that’s going the 45 that’s the American
Cancer Society and that’s going
to be the big debate is how do Cancer Society and that’s going
to be the big debate is how do
we pay for this is a system, to be the big debate is how do
we pay for this is a system,
but you know it screens very we pay for this is a system,
but you know it screens very
important we can prevent but you know it screens very
important we can prevent
cancers. That’s the goal. important we can prevent
cancers. That’s the goal.
So if you have a precancerous cancers. That’s the goal.
So if you have a precancerous
polyp will say. So if you have a precancerous
polyp will say.
>>4345 how long does that take to develop before he could to develop before he could
become cancerous so it’s a good to develop before he could
become cancerous so it’s a good
question the traditional become cancerous so it’s a good
question the traditional
thinking was you know it takes question the traditional
thinking was you know it takes
a polyp about 10 years to thinking was you know it takes
a polyp about 10 years to
become a cancer. a polyp about 10 years to
become a cancer.
>>That’s why cost is spread become a cancer.
>>That’s why cost is spread
over 10 years but think we’re>>That’s why cost is spread
over 10 years but think we’re
learning more about politic over 10 years but think we’re
learning more about politic
answers. They’re different, you learning more about politic
answers. They’re different, you
know not every call cancer is answers. They’re different, you
