First-degree relatives (n=206) of patients operated on for colorectal cancer (CRC) (n=181) were offered a colonoscopic screening examination; 169 relatives (82%) attended.
The findings were compared with those in a normal population sample with no CRC in first-degree relatives (n=308), aged 50-59 years, who had been screened by means of flexible sigmoidoscopy.
Three carcinomas and 176 polyps were found in 56 of 95 male relatives (57%) and 34 of 74 female relatives (46%).
