- adj. Relating to the type of examination of the colon.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Our beloved ex President, Cory Aquino, is dying in a Manila hospital of colon cancer: because few people here in the Philippines get sigmoidoscopic/colonoscopic screening ($390,000 per additional life-year saved) or even Hemoccult tests on the BM ($20,000 per year life saved).
Preventive Services Task Force now recommends that adults age 50 to 75 be screened for colorectal cancer using annual high-sensitivity fecal occult blood testing, sigmoidoscopy every five years with fecal occult testing between sigmoidoscopic exams, or colonoscopy every 10 years.
