Relatives of patients with colorectal cancer have on average a two to threefold increased risk for developing bowel neoplasia although in some families the risk is much higher.
This study examined the compliance for endoscopic screening and faecal occult blood testing among first degree relatives of patients with colorectal cancer to determine the feasibility of offering a screening service in a surgical practice.
The endoscopic method (flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy) offered depended upon the extent of family history.
Spouses of patients were offered flexible sigmoidoscopy as a group for comparison.
