Article Abstract

Faecal haemoglobin concentration and personalised assessment of the risk of colorectal neoplasia

Authors: Callum G. Fraser


Since it is the third most common cancer developed and the fourth cause of cancer related death worldwide, CRC still presents a major health problem (1). However, if colorectal neoplasia is detected at an early stage, outcomes for individuals are much improved (2). Asymptomatic population-based screening programmes for colorectal neoplasia have been widely introduced since the criteria for successful screening are more than met.
