Abstract

Screening for colorectal cancer has not obtained worldwide acceptance in spite of its proven survival benefit for average-risk persons and some high-risk groups. The incidence of and mortality from colorectal cancer are worrying in Europe as well as in the USA, Australia and Japan. The best evidence-based studies are those published on screening using faecal occult blood tests, endoscopic methods and different tumour markers having been evaluated to a lesser degree. Feasibility studies are necessary before massive screening can be undertaken because the results obtained from randomized studies may not be reproduced to a satisfactory degree in average- as well as high-risk populations. Primary prevention by dietary intervention and drugs has been studied in great detail, so far without any major breakthrough. Thischapter will address different screening methods in populations with a varying risk of colorectal cancer, together with providing a short review of prevention and intervention strategies.
