How to Prevent colon cancer clinical trials Colon cancer, or colorectal cancer, is malignant cell growth in the lower large intestine, colon, and rectum. It has the potential to spread to other organs, making it a very dangerous form of cancer. Fortunately, early detection is possible with regular screening. In addition, there are a number of lifestyle and dietary changes you can make to lower your risk of developing colon cancer. 1 Take risk factors seriously. With regular screening, colon cancer is treatable and may be prevented. Knowing your risk factors will dictate when you start getting screened. Being aware of certain medical and lifestyle risks can help you catch colon cancer early and give you a high chance of survival. Most colon cancers occur after age 50, and African-Americans are at higher risk than other races 2 Investigate your family history. If you have one or more relatives who have had colon cancer, your chances of getting the disease increases.[3] If you have a family history of colon cancer, you should consult your doctor and see if he would recommend screening. 3 Learn if you have another medical risk factor. Inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis can increase your risk for colon cancer. If you've been diagnosed with either of these conditions, you are at an increased risk and should consult with your doctor regularly. Certain genetic conditions like familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (Lynch syndrome) or diabetes can increase your risk of colon cancer. 4

How to Self Screen for Colon Cancer|alternatives to colonoscopy for colon cancer screening Colon cancer is the third most common cancer. However, there are excellent screening tests available and, when caught early, colon cancer is able to be treated and cured in 90% of all cases.[1] This is why following through with the recommended screening is so important. See your family doctor to learn how to self-screen for colon cancer via the at-home stool test, which is recommended every one to two years for people over the age of 50. Though colon screenings performed by trained doctors are always best, an at-home test is better than nothing and could point out issues that you'll need to address. 1 Evaluate your level of risk for colon cancer.[2] Everyone is eligible for colon cancer screening beginning at the age of 50; however, if you have a family history of colon cancer, or a personal history of inflammatory bowel disease (such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, both of which increase your risk of developing colon cancer) you may be eligible to begin screening earlier. Don't wait to discuss this with your doctor — even if you are still young, it is important to notify your doctor if you have any risk factors. See your doctor at age 50 to begin self-screening, and earlier if you believe you have additional risk factors (in which case your doctor will let you know at what age you are eligible to begin). 2 Obtain the testing package.[3] The first thing you will need to do in order to self-screen for colon cancer is to obtain the at-home stool testing package. You will need to visit your family doctor to obtain this, and she will explain the procedure to you during this visit as well. One stool test is called the Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT). This looks for blood in your stool that is not visible to the naked eye. It is the most commonly used self-screening test for colon cancer.[4] Another stool test option is called the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT). This i

Cured from Crohn's disease with Auto-hemotherapy A colonoscopy with the disease and a colonoscopy WITHOUT the disease. My name is Jose Luiz Dutra, I am now 77 years old and live in the city of Salvador, state of Bahia, Brazil. Crohn's disease is considered incurable and is characterised by a bowel ulcer, great discomfort of the intestinal flow, weight loss and negative psychological effects. For over 10 years, I was suffering from this disease, taking traditional medicines, such as azulfim, mesacol, etc, without any improvement and having colonoscopies every year. In 2007, I learned about auto-hemotherapy from Dr. Luiz Moura's video, soon after a colonoscopie that showed my disease was stationary. My father practiced Auto-hemotherapy at his old drugstore for many years, to treat furunculosis, acnes and wounds. Penicillin or sulpha didn't exist until 1945 and the treatment of these diseases was done with Auto-hemotherapy. There has never been any case of rejection, allergicor infectious reaction in the applications he did. In 2008 I had Auto-hemotherapy for 6 months, with weekly injections of 10ml into the muscle, making up a total of 24 applications. The result obtained was a complete cicatrization of the ulcers, disappearance of polyps as proven by a colonoscopie, improvement to the intestinal tract, weight gain and general disposition. These were the results obtained. There are millions of people with autoimune diseases suffering the same as I did. I ask you to make my testimony available to everyone. God bless you, from your friend José Luiz Dutra
