  1. Worry associated with screening for colorectal carcinomas.

    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    We wanted to assess the worry created by a screening program for colorectal cancer with fecal occult blood testing.

    Methods 

    Six thousand three hundred and sixty-six individuals (47% men ; 53% women) were asked to what extent they were worried when they received an invitation letter including a Hemoccult II test (HII).

    The questionnaire was supplemented by a structured telephone interview of a selected number of individuals with different outcome of the HII.

    Results 

    Three thousand four hundred and eighty-six subjects performed the HII test, and 3548 (56%) answered the questionnaire.

    Eighty-four per cent (n=2932) of the participants and 21% (n=616) of the non-participants completed the questionnaire.

    Half of the participants (54%) were not worried at all, but 16%, more women than men, felt severe worry, which lasted less than I week in 59%. In 4.7% of the participants daily life was negatively influenced by the invitation letter.

    In the telephone interview 19% reported severe worry before they received the result of the first test, and in 5.8% daily life was negatively affected.

    The worry rate increased to 60% in the groups with an initial positive HII test, and in 15% daily life was negatively influenced.

    After the examination the worry decreased in most but was still pronounced in 10%. One year after the work-up 96% declared that they appreciated the study. (...)
