Title: Disease, secondary prevention and treatment results of colon cancer in humans against forty years of age


Over the past several years there is a noticeable increase in the incidence of colorectal cancer well in yunger people. The study showed that for patients 40 years old IV stage (33,3%) colorectal cancer was recognized more frequently compared with patients aged 45-65 years (26.1%), but the differences revealed no characteristics of statistical significance(p = 0.2790). According to this elaborate there were tested five year survival times as per the Kaplan - Meier for two groups of patients. For patients 40 years old survival rates were 47.9%, whereas for patients aged 45 -65 years were 56.8%. There is no significant difference (p = 0.09148) between the course of the curve of recurrence for patients up to 40 years of age, and a group of patients aged 45-65 years. Then relevant split of the research group was performed (pairing) and in the next stage of research with the research group aged 45-65 years there were eliminated people who died not because of cancer, which has allowed to observe statistically significant difference between the two groups (p = 0.029). Similarly, in the research group-pair there is a significant difference in recurrence curves for the two age groups of the patients (p = 0.006).A questionnaire was sent to all patients from the research group. Results of the survey confirmed that only less than 1% of patients have benefited from the program for the pr ; evention of colon cancer, and more than 70% patients performer colonoscopies. Due to the diagnosis of colorectal cancer - mainly of the third and fourth stage - for people up to forty years old (54.1%) and due to lack of prevention in this group (as shown in the performed survey), it seems to be appropriate to propose a form of secondary prevention for such people considering also the cases of cancer and non-specific inflammatory diseases of the colon in close family. In the last part of this elaborate there was presented health program for early detection of colorectal cancer for people aged less than forty years.
