Gut Feelings

"This is dr. Michael wilks with a second opinion for several weeks drew appointments to see me and then canceled them at the very last minute when he finally showed up. He was concerned about a rash on his lower legs. I diagnosed flea bites. But he just didn't look good. I asked him all sorts of general questions about his health and he kept saying he was fine but given his age and his smoking history. I ordered a long. Cat scan and tests for colon cancer. Even though he'd had one just four years ago the student who was working with me asked why was ordering those tests. When i'm usually so careful about not over ordering tests. She reminded me that. I always make her. Tell me why she is ordering every test. She wants to order on every patient. But all i could offer her was. I had a gut feeling. She told me that. I didn't seem like a gut feeling sort of doctor. And all i could say was that something. Just doesn't seem right. She asked me what i saw. And i really couldn't identify any one thing. It wasn't something he said. Perhaps it was a subconscious summing up of his words or actions are nonverbal behaviors regardless we moved on to the next patient clinicians gut feelings while not scientific or evidence based need to be acknowledged as a component of clinical decision making perhaps spike gut feeling. I meant it was a intuition or a suspicion or an instinct or even a clinical impression. I realized that gut feelings are very subjective and are prone to my bias. So i usually try to focus on objective findings when i went to fill out the request for this et scan. I wasn't even sure what to put in the blank. Where it said reason four-test i could imagine the radiologist laughing at me. If i wrote. I just have a gut feeling. A recent study looked at research on gut feelings related to cancer diagnoses. The study found that clinicians had difficulty specifying what their guts were saying. However win the gut feelings were present. Clinicians generally acted on them either through referrals or through a careful. Workup of seventeen thousand patients included in the study. The odds of a cancer diagnosis were four times higher. When the doctor had had a gut feeling than when they did not gut feelings were more accurate with older physicians and were more accurate. The better the doctor knew the patient it turns out that often these gut feelings were even more predictive than a combination of described symptoms. One week later drew. Cat scan came back showing lung cancer. The student was impressed. But i didn't pat myself on the back rather as a researcher. I've been trying to figure out what it was that gave me that gut feeling.

"This is Terrence Howard. My mother was the cornerstone of our family. She shaped me as an actor, a musician as a human being. So when she was diagnosed with colon cancer, it was like our whole family got cancer and she died when she was only 56. So this is personal. Hopefully, my heartbreak is your wake up call. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer, but you can prevent this disease screening finds pre cancerous polyps so that they can be removed before they turn into cancer. I've been screen If you think that you're at an increased risk, like I am ask your doctor went to start screening. And if you're 50 or older get screen. I don't have my mother anymore.

"colon cancer" Discussed on Second Opinion

"This is dr michael wilks. With a second opinion colon cancer is common and it can be serious. The risk of developing colon cancer is influenced by both environmental engineering factors and varies greatly around the world. The highest rates are in australia and new zealand. Vote lowest rates in africa also when somebody moves from a lower risk nation to a higher risk nation. They tend to acquire the risk of their new country so all of this suggests that perhaps dietary and environmental exposures are important contributors to colon cancer also like with so many other diseases lower socioeconomic status also puts people at higher risk. Age is also a major risk factor. Colon cancer is uncommon before the age of forty but the rate seems to be increasing between the ages of forty and fifty and it increases much faster. The more we age so we use screening tests a colon. Cancer screening test is done to detect the cancer in people who do not yet have any symptoms. The goal of early detection is to reduce the risk of disease by finding the cancer early when treatments. Easier and can be more effective. One of the most scholarly nonbiased groups in the world. That's focused on disease. Prevention is the us preventive services task force the recently issued a draft recommendation to lower the starting age of colorectal cancer screening from fifty to forty five. Now when they make a recommendation like this they give it a letter grade from a to. I based on the strength of the scientific evidence for this group. The preventive services task force gave the evidence eight b grade meaning that there's moderate certainty of benefit also. This b grade requires all health insurers to cover these screenings with no co payment under the affordability. Care act with screening. It's important to examine both. The potential benefits and harms of any guidelines harms include false positives and false negatives in any dangers associated with the workup. That may cause more harm then. The benefit now according to predictions the benefit from screen people who have no symptoms and are between the ages of forty five and fifty would-be that we would avoid two deaths for every thousand people that we screened by comparison when we screen older people we prevent about twenty seven deaths compared to know screening so a much bigger benefit also when we begin to scream. Millions of people aged forty five to fifty. There are some complications for example. I already have a really hard time finding an expert to do the colonoscopy for my patients and they often need to wait for five or six months for an appointment. If we start screening lower risk people who maybe more health conscious we may inadvertently divert resources away from those who are older and at much greater risk if we start screening younger people for colon cancer. Perhaps then it's time to train physician's assistants and nurse practitioners to do some of these routine procedures under the guidance of an expert. Not only do i predict. They'll do really well but the cost to the procedure will be a fraction of the current. Three thousand three hundred dollars so when we do make these recommendations. It's important that we think of both the intended as well as the unintended consequences. This is dr. Michael wilks with a second opinion..

"This is the final Chadwick Boseman trailer isn't it turned out? It turns out that Ma Rainey's black bottom Will be the last. A full completed film from Chadwick Boseman, who last August passed away after a very long private battle with colon cancer that took his young life on Lee at 43 years old. The Black Panther star was working on this film with Oscar winner Violet Davis. It's the film adaptation of the August Wilson play that's been at the Goodman Theater and other theaters but probably the biggest and most ambitious. Production in Chicago was the one that was at the Goodman and I was going to play some of it for you hear on the radio, but it's extremely visual and a lot of it would be lost, but it's fantastic. It's got Oscar. Winds all over it from violent Davis to Chadwick. To the choreography, the music. This just looks like it's going to be an amazing film. When it comes out on Netflix in December, 1 week for Christmas, that's going to be coming out on Netflix. Marini's black bottom. If you go to YouTube or the Netflix pages, you could take a look at the trailer. You will not be disappointed in this. I have to check that out now onto somebody feed

So when you think about people who deferred to things happen for a reason, people who Who hand that back to someone in a bad place like Kate, who has stage four colon cancer. What's your response? I just watched my brother leave the world with colon cancer. You know, Harry, thank you. Been thinking about this for a couple of years is In some sense, That's the question of life, which is What's the reason I'm here? And why do I go when I have so many precious relationships and things to do in the world? And I know you've thought a lot about this. Kelly like When we asked that question was the reason for this the end of life for This disease. We get to the rial essential inquiry, right? It gets us to like why my Here and that in our own what William James really encourage us and it's a great tradition in American thought of find out the answer on your own, you know, and you will arrive at your philosophy of life. But I worry about when we turn over the answers to other people and to institutions as a lot of people have Yes. So when you say things happen for a reason, it can almost feel like You're adapting a posture of passivity. I agree. I agree. And and you know, that is a deep worry that we handed over Teo ideologues or two institutions that provide answers, which is ah, deep tendency. The other thing that that phrase everything happens for a reason. Denies us. The opportunity to think about is is that well, you know, parts of life are really complicated and chaotic and unfair and unfair and unpredictable. And that's part of the game, too. There's a lot of science that says, you know, as I encountered grappling with my own brother's passing is which was unfair and he was way too young is We have to face that stuff squarely, too, and not just handed off. What was your brother's name? Ralph? It's for you off. Thanks, Doctor. Thank you. Kelly took a lot of notes during that conversation. Here's what I jot it down. Pain comes to everybody. All our specialness. All the particularities of our lives. Don't exempt us from suffering, and that should make us much nicer to each other. When tragedy hit someone you love better to listen more and talk less. May we count ourselves lucky If we have only had one belly button.

"colon cancer" Discussed on Broken Brain with Dhru Purohit

"So that's why we see cancers in the colon and in the in the intestines and stomach because it's getting exposed to so many toxins from the outside world and when you say exposed to, can you break down a little further? So we can connect the dots we always talk about. You know how health and disease starts in the Gut. So when it's being exposed, what's happening there in that process where things are for the first time absorbing really into our our our body. Yeah. So mean. One of the things we know about cancer is that it likes to grow in the face of inflammation. So win, there is inflammation around cancer sometimes can can grow and get a and develop and so win. There's exposure to some of the tissue in the inside of the body right inside the the the colon there'd be inflammation in the in there that can then cause a can trigger can trigger damage to cells in the body has to go and try to fix them and healed them, and sometimes it it makes mistakes and cancer will grow. And Right now, at least from the current Western point of view, what are the thoughts as to why colon cancer happens. Any, you know they're they're they're they estimate researchers estimated that about half of all colorectal cancer is related to lifestyle. So of course, like you mentioned before there are genetic risks. There are some people who develop more of these roasts or precancerous polyps or Gross inside their colon and that is more likely to become invasive cancer. So. So there are some people who have genetic risks for colorectal cancer, but a large portion at least half are due to lifestyle. So some of the risks we that are related to colorectal cancer include an obesity. Smoking lack of physical exercise. We can talk a little more about why that might be A high leap diet definitely high process Neak diet High Char broiled meat diet, low low vegetable diet. So we know that if we're eating more, you know the vet classic that Sad American dire at standard American diet. That's sad diet which is higher in meat and and lowered vegetables have been associated with colorectal. Cancer. and and and share with us. I know you pulled up some of these stats, but I think especially with with Chadwick Bozeman. And and how young he was. Tell us what you know about some of the stats I. This is something that especially I think everybody should pay attention to. But why is it that young people should especially be paying attention to this? You know it's it's It's a concern. Actually I've personally lost a few very close people who were in their thirties and forties to call rectal cancer. Where we are seeing more of it in young adults receiving in young people about twelve percent of colorectal cancer cases in the. US. Are In people less than fifty and we've done we've done a really good job. I think getting the message out in terms of screening for people over fifty. We definitely know like every cancer and colorectal cancers are the same as we get older a risk of of cancer does increase but we are seeing a much a definite increased risk of colorectal cancer in in our younger people and people less than than fifty in fact..

"Is in big part due to you being part of her team of physicians and and individuals who helped her get back her health. So thank you again for taking care of my mom. So so we're here today to talk about a very timely topic and that is colon cancer or colon rectal cancer. This topic has been in the news because of the unfortunate untimely and just sad situation that's happened with Chadwick Bozeman some of them. Some of our listeners may know if they're not familiar with the name Black Panther, he recently passed away and it was brought to light that he had been battling. In private colon cancer for a few years while making movies working on projects and other things ultimately, he passed away from complications with cancer and in that process I've had so many young people message me saying you know, wow, this is crazy. This happen to somebody who was such an icon first of all and what do I need to know about this topic of colon cancer? So when I was exploring doing an episode on it, I couldn't think of anybody better than you to chat about it not only you as a physician in your background but also you are a cancer survivor yourself not with colon cancer but breast cancer for audience isn't familiar. Can we start there and just you share a little bit about your journey High Level with breast cancer? Absolutely drew you know. So I was I was young I'm it was actually I just had my twenty. Twenty first anniversary might can't bursary a couple of days ago like relations I know, right. So I was thirty and without a family history of breast cancer really wasn't expecting to have breast cancer or to get breast cancer was not something I, was worried about especially at that age and so when I was diagnosed with this triple negative at Mesa breast cancer it really it really threw me for a loop as it does so many people who are diagnosed with cancer. Indefinitely when you're diagnosed young it sort of shifts shift your life a lot But through that process of of you know I went through Treatment Chemotherapy, surgery radiation, and all sorts of other integrative in therapeutic treatments that I did. Afterwards I was like I really step back and I'm like, what just happened to me and I wanted to say wanted to figure this out. You know the so many unanswered questions that I had in terms of. Why did this happen? What was I doing wrong because I was I was is really focused on nutrition and wellness. My background is all in nutrition and I I was quote the healthy one I was I was always trying to take care of myself and teach others how to take care of themselves. So. I really trying to figure out what what did I do wrong. If I didn't do anything wrong and and why are we seeing this increased rate of cancer in young people and what can I do to prevent a reoccurrence myself and with my patients? And then I went on children. So then in my children so it was it was just became this late is really interest of mine to delve into and that's around the time where I met Mark Hyman and started learning about functional medicine and it was just it was mind blowing sort of opened up this whole of the world for me where I was like, okay.

Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate the perspective having medical professionals on and I just wanted to ask. I feel like I've heard it voice a couple of times that. People have been really hesitant to discuss colon cancer because it's always been kind of taboo part of the body. I wonder how regularly he finds that people. Are less unwilling to discuss it as they are kind of willing to discuss it with what they perceive as a Western. Medical official. You know he's had to change any of his perspectives in order to meet. You know native treatment plans. Because there's so other modalities that have been tested. Besides you know. Surgery. Chemo and radiation and I wonder if he experiences a lot of people saying. Well couldn't I try and all? Vegetarian. Diet and change. Or. You know what? About this? What about that?

"Screening modalities whether you WANNA call announce coppee or to a fit test, which is a FICO blood test. That gets done yearly That's another option for people who don't want colonoscopy. So, you know I think clinicians and clinics have to be. You know have access to resources which I realize. In native country is not always Always. The way it is, and sometimes it requires a travel waiting nor there's just not much access so. So it's conversation and I think the more conversation doctors can have with with patients and customers. the more conversations in families are and I think eventually people. Come around all those. There are still always people who just don't want to know. There's I think it's fear basis just if they don't talk about it or you don't look maybe it won't happen to them. And You know you just you keep trying to. Encourage people we have one of the thing in Alaska. We have lowered our screening age down from it used to be everybody at fifty and I think nationally it's starting to move toward nationally screen at age forty five but we've been screening people's starting at age forty for several years. Now, because of the increased incidence as you mentioned in that forty to fifty year old age group, we're seeing that here as well including you know people having advanced disease early on so we're trying to adapt to. To, win, it happens in our community. So so that's some of the conversation and. Thank you and you know it is a hard conversation especially when we talk about cancer and breaking through some of that is sometimes the hardest thing and that's how we're having this dialogue. Now maybe it doesn't feel comfortable to have this at your dinner table But these are things you've wondered about, maybe you want to talk about this with your doctor but you.

"Yeah, unfortunately, for Alaskan native people, this disparity hidden having higher rates of rectal cancer have actually persisted for over thirty years. So it's something the were were increasing our screening rates, but we haven't yet seen the declines in death or new cases of cancer that we'd like to see. So that's something we still are working on, but it's still been higher even over the last thirty years. In. So doctorate would from your understanding and just working with people. How much of this is on people's radar? That's a good question I think in when we have health fairs, we traveled to communities and have community health AIDS, but talk to the people that live in their areas more and more people are aware of it. But when we actually ask people why they don't get screened because that's you know they're they're about one in three Alaskan native people are getting screened at the age they should be, and so we ask people why don't you get screened and there are a number of reasons sometimes people are fearful or Procedures, they don't know about the types of tests available or they are busy a lot of us are trying to gather fishes and get our garden, and so there's a lot that goes auden people's lives that might prevent them from looking to preventive care. In Dr, Corbett turn that to you. What are your thoughts when you hear while it's just too busy. Yeah, well, I I wanted to back up a little bit and onto I'll tell you the the conversation is. happening a lot. Let's see if we can get him back while we do that Dr would age, and that is something that is making headlines. Younger people are experiencing this anything. You WanNa share about what we know about age in why? Hearing more younger people are getting this and. What is young go ahead Yes Oh nationally recommendation is that everyone aged fifty and over get colorectal cancer screening and by everyone I mean men and women we all have colons making sure that we all get screened now for some groups for example, Alaskan native people we've had some recommendations to start screening earlier because of higher rates of precancerous polyps and cancer in this population. So for Alaskan, native people, we often recommend to getting screened at forty. There has been some recommendations for example, the American Cancer Society has come out they'd to start screening at age forty five. So there are some differences and so it's really important for people to talk to their provider and learn more about what their risks might be but for sure everyone over fifty should get screed but there has been a lot of concern as you mentioned that those under fifty there has been some real increases in the rates of colorectal cancer in that age group. Fall, but it is rising and that's something that is of concern nationally and within native communities. All right. Thank you for that I. Think we have Dr Corporate Back Dr. Corbett go ahead, share.

All right, well, Colin campus of Camp again, and colorectal cancer is a pro return and it's we're seeing increased rates and younger people currently to get last stated used to start being screened at age 50 in the screening colonoscopy.

But if you have colon cancer You could have no symptoms. But the most common symptom is rectal bleeding, abdominal pain and and all constipation.

"Invasive type of screening options for patients. So you know there are stool based tasks that look for microscopic amounts of blood in the stool most recently, one of the newer tests not only looks for blood, but it also looks for. Certain proteins or parts of DNA that are shed by large high-risk polyps and colon cancer, and so if any one of those things is identified, it kind of flags it as a positive. So, those are options for people that are less invasive than a colonoscopy. But let's say if you choose the the the the stool test route, the immune, a chemical stool test route whether it's simply looking for blood in the stool you're looking at needing to repeat that test every single year if we're talking about the other tests, the that incorporates the the stool DNA which is known as Cola guard Then if it's negative, you would need to repeat that in three years. So it really depends on. What type of test you're doing which will determine the the timing of your next? Screening. So, let's say you have a patient for example that would opt for the less invasive you stole tests right like could they go for you? That screening period from fifty, the seventy five for example, just on the stool tests or would you recommend like? Hey, you know I think it might be a good idea. We throw in scope you know somewhere in there like could they go theoretically from fifty to seventy five without having to do A scope, would you recommend that if it's someone who is average risk without any symptoms than that is an option for them to to only have to do annual stool tests, but it's really important I emphasize the importance of this if someone decides to go that route, it's really important not to miss not to prolong the the test, the duration between tests. It's very important that every single year that that tests get done. yeah, and we can be so busy in our lives that we can put it off for forget about it. So but what's the importance of emphasizing these choices? Is that many options rain and we have? Enough knowledge and experience and data. You know to be able to say like, Hey, you know this works you know but we just have to educate the patients educate and reinforce that relationship between patients in healthcare provider to be able to say like, Hey, here's your options. Let's get this done. You know in review their history. Which is a nice segment to you know as we close out like what are the things that you would recommend like looking out for like what are the signs and symptoms we talk about this in the beginning but like you know, what are what are things like you know someone was curious like? I am really distraught with you know Chadwick Wolfson's death. You know I know a lot of people that had colon cancer like how can I? What are some things I need to look forward to be like, Hey, you know this is a red flag I need to go see my doctor for things to ask them when they see them. So it's yeah, I'm glad you kind of brought us back to. To the the different symptoms that people should be looking for. You know you know typically when we're talking about colon cancer screening were thinking of someone who's completely symptomatic right someone who based on their age and their family history requires a screening. But when we deal with a systems alarm symptoms that require a diagnostic evaluation that's completely different. So you know for heat for especially the young. Population under fifty. It's really important that if anyone is having rectal bleeding, please don't attribute it to just hemorrhoids. It's very, very important to have that evaluated by a gastroenterologist. Even your primary care doctor start the conversation. Let him know how often that the bleeding you're seeing the bleeding it's really important to to be mindful of maybe changes in in your bowel habits whether. Regular let's say with with not having destroyed and all of a sudden you know you're you're going several days without a bowel movement it's not getting any better. You try to modify your diet. Don't wait months and months to let someone know about that. It's really important that you start that conversation. With your with your primary doctor other healthcare provider yeah. I'm so glad that you brought that up because a lot of people you know from my experience working with these patients is they attribute to hemorrhoids basically it's like, oh I just ate a bag of you know flaming hot cheetos and you know it's bleeding and I haven't pooped in a few days and those are just attributed to that. Young and older and and I'm just like, no any type of blood you know we gotta make sure that you know we. Do our due diligence and follow through like you said. So you can't over overstate this enough on really really glad that you brought that up. So. Absolutely, and especially now that we're seeing this the slow rise incidents and younger people know in the past, we would just say you know less likely anything dangerous anything significant. Probably hemorrhoids work on your fiber for several months and let us know but. It's really hard for someone to just attribute the that rectal bleeding to simple hemorrhoids. So it really is important that people. Get out talk to your doctors listened to your body's and and really kind of start that conversation. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely and so you know as much as we love Chadwick Bozeman how much you brought to the world I would hate to. See other people not actually talk about this and go to their doctor and and and start that conversation. So Tom, thank you so much for being on the show today I, really appreciate you taking the time and sharing your expertise on any follow up. You know a finishing thoughts on you know to give to the audience. Well. Thank you very much for the opportunity? It's it's always a pleasure. It's always great talking to you Colin. I'm really excited for what you're doing and you know the audience you're trying to reach. I think. As. Far as any last minute thoughts, really my suggestion is just to emphasize that colon cancer is a big problem here in the United States it's a very common problem and it's very lethal if caught Leo. So really start that conversation listened to your body's if something's not right if you're having abdominal pain, erectile bleeding or changes in your all habits just and it's not going away after a few weeks. It's really important that you reach out and. Medical. Attention. So yeah. Yeah. Yeah definitely. Yeah. Thank you. Again for those lasts last thoughts. Guys again you know this is a special episode. Forthright Bites on please as much fun and conversational. We tend to get in the previous episodes in over time you know the information comes across says, you know we want you to be well, you know we want your family to be well, you know these are tough times were in the together and but don't.

I think a refrain over the weekend like all of our across all channels social media was just like you never know what someone's going through then.

"I'm your host Daryl Cheka, a general internist at mayo clinic in Rochester, Minnesota colon. Cancer is the second leading cancer killer in men and women in the United States. One in twenty will develop colon cancer during their lifetime, and it's predicted that over one hundred forty thousand new cases will be found in two thousand nineteen colon cancer screening is affected and colon. Cancer is preventable. According to the American Cancer Society colon cancer, incidence has declined as a result of screening, yet it's estimated that one in three adults from age, fifty to seventy five years have never had screening for colon cancer. Today's topic is colon cancer screening in our guest is Dr John Kissel, a guest Renner allergist add male clinic in Rochester. Minnesota, welcome John Darrow. Thank you for having me. Well, let's start. By talking about the patients who should be screened for colon cancer who when, when should this start happening? So there is broad agreement and endorsement by multiple guidelines that virtually all adults in the United States, who are at average risk for colorectal cancer should start screening at age fifty and that recommendation is supported by guidelines from the United States preventive services task force, the multi society task force for colorectal cancer screening, which includes the American gastroenterology association and the American college of gastroenterology, there are guidelines were issued about a year ago from the American Cancer Society that suggested that based on some modeling studies, and computer simulation, that there would be benefit to starting screening as early as age forty five even in the general population that recommendation has been met with some con. Traversee. I think the benefits are clear, but there may be substantial additional costs and there are some risks associated with screening. And so there's been a general call to develop evidence in support of changing or keeping the current guideline. There are some suggestions from, from other societies that we could start screening African Americans as early as age forty five but in general, I think there's broad consensus on age fifty patients who are younger than fifty and interested in starting screening. Early should talk with their doctor. And they should also probably talk with their insurance company to make sure that, that test would get covered. So that's the recommendations for average risk individuals. How about those who may have a family history of colon cancer, or a family history of colon polyps, do they need to have different recommendations? Yes. Now the evidence supporting those recommendations is. Is is, is low quality, but and there, there are recommendations from guidelines, especially the multi society, task force document from 2017 that suggests that patients who have a first degree relative with colorectal cancer, who was younger than age sixty or younger. When they when they had that diagnosis, or an advanced at enormou- that would be a large polyp one that contained villas or high-grade architecture. So I agree relatives of patients with young, onset colon cancer, or young, onset advanced adenoma, defined by age sixty should start colon cancer screening at age forty or ten years before their relative was diagnosed, whichever comes first, and it's specifically recommended that those individuals be screened with colon. Aw Skippy instead of other screening modalities, and that. They would receive their screening tests more frequently as often as every five years, if you have a first degree relative age, sixty or older with colon cancer or advanced adenoma guidelines have suggested that they start screening at age forty as well. But they can have any of the modalities, and they can be screened at the standard intervals for each of those tests. So no modification to how often so any change in recommendations for those who may have had like a grandparent, who has had colon cancer. No so presently, if, if you don't have a genetic syndrome, and we can talk about that later a second degree relative grandparent, or a first cousin or a an uncle or an aunt. Those individuals would not be believed to be at such increased risk that they would alter their screening pathway. Okay. All right. Well, who's it? Increased risk for getting colon cancer. So there are variety outside of, of family history or rather within family history. There are patients who will be recognized to have a hereditary cancer syndrome. The most common of those is a disease called Lynch syndrome in which patients, lack and one of four enzymes that repairs DNA damage during that, that may occur as part of proof reading errors from normal cell division and Lynch syndrome. Patients can have a very high lifetime risk of colon cancer upwards of seventy percent, depending on the mutation patients with familial ad Nomex polyposis. They will form literally hundreds if not thousands of polyps that will carpet, their coal, and during their teenager early adult years and they have virtually one hundred percent lifetime risk of colon cancer. Rare diseases, such as juvenile polyposis or point Yeager 's these are the syndrome it cancers. And oftentimes those are picked up by a very careful and detailed family history. Those are for the most part, autosomal dominant diseases, where you start recognizing not just a first degree relative. Like, you know, dad had colon cancer, but dad's dad had colon cancer or other cancers occurring in women such as those of the, the, the guy neca logic tracked would be a red flag for for provider to consider Lynch, syndrome, or other hereditary disorders. We are increasingly when we find a person who has colon cancer. It's also been recommended by USPS Tf that we test that tumor for either protein expression or DNA proof proofreading errors that would suggest the presence or absence of Lynch. Syndrome, and now we're increasingly testing all colon cancers that way to identify families who may be missed by the, the older pedigree based methods so outside of those genetic mutations. We also have over a million Americans, the United States who have inflammatory bowel disease Crohn's disease of the colon or all sort of colitis for ten or more years place. Those patients at increased risk, and that's actually, the one of the clinic environments, I practice in commonly, so each of those patients with inflammatory bowel disease, or these hereditary syndromes, fall well, outside of the standard colon cancer screening guidelines, and they now fall into a pathway that we call surveillance because of their increased risk. They're going to have a customized often very intensive and infrequently colonoscopy based testing regimen to try to spot those cancers early or remove high risk polyps. Okay. Well, most of my patients are elderly and. And I need to know. When can I stop colon cancer screening? Is there some general guidelines that absolutely USPS Tf broadly states that screening should be stopped around age, seventy five unless there are extenuating circumstances? There are also models that have been conducted that, that try to demonstrate where a number needed to screen and a number needed to harm intersect. Meaning winter, we actually doing our patients disservice by performing screening abroad rule of thumb for an older patient would be that if they had co morbidity that you thought would would reasonably shorten their life span that you should be thinking about that. And, and typically a rule of thumb for a healthy patient would be deciduous, have at least ten years of very high quality, high functioning life. So, you know, I think as we start to have conversations with patients who have COPD or heart failure, poorly, controlled diabetes, chronic kidney disease. It's important for, for people to understand that the colon cancer screening starts to carry increase risks both for sedation. And also the procedure itself. I've had patients look at me when I have this conversation and say, but are you canal condemning me to, to die of colon cancer? And the answer is no, I'm, I'm trying to avoid harming you with with screening test. That could ultimately result in an invasive exam, or well, the dilemma, I often have is a patient, who has had a history of colon polyps at minutes, polyps with the each colon us copy, and they're now getting into their eighties. Do I continue doing colonoscopy is and this despite their advanced age? But given the fact that they've had polyps I think, again, that needs to be an individualized conversation with the patients and again, their age, especially their medical coolmore biddies more so than than a numerical value for age begin to dominate the conversation. What do we know about how long it takes for a pile up to actually develop into a malignancy? So, you know, dogmatically we've thought that it takes about ten years for a garden variety polyp to arise from completely normal tissue to get all the way to the point of an invasive cancer. But that is essentially an empirical estimates, and the answer the realistic answers that actually nobody really knows. We are very interested when we're doing colonoscopy at making sure that we're finding large and small polyps because the success rate with, which we find polyps predicts, how likely we are. Prevent cancer. But it's not a one to one relationship for polyps that are smaller than five millimetres diameter, probably five out of every six of those polyps might invalid and go away. So I think advocates of a non invasive screening tests stool based tests are focusing, mainly on, you know, the, the success with which we identify advanced or high risk pre cancers as more likely to contribute to the prevention of the development of cancer over time. Right. Do all Flynn cancers, develop from polyps. We think that they do the question is whether or not, we're actually able to recognize the polyp when we're when we're doing an exam. So we think in general that all lesions will proceed through some form of a dysplasia transformation into what we would call. Athle- Apollo up before proceeding to cancer. But. We'll probably need to talk a little bit about the different types of polyps that can be found. And how likely we are during a screening program to find, and remove those, we traditionally think of polyps as the, the adenoma polyp, which in many persons minds, I would be sort of a mushroom cap or a polyp on a stock. However, we also know that probably a third of colon cancer is a rise from Sarid precursors. The, the sessile serrated polyp or sessile, serrated adenoma, the antiquated name are, are flat, and they don't have a particularly large raise surface, they can often be obscured by poor prep and can be very, very difficult to see as a community. We probably didn't even recognize these until less than a decade ago when. We started reporting them through our, our pathology group and actually started trying to devote attention to training and dos campus to recognizing these lesions. Their present predominantly on the, the right side of the colon for the most part. And they probably account for about a third of all colon cancers. So do do the Cecil pilots have an increased propensity to turn into cancer? Or is it just that they're often missed because they're harder to see? I think it's the latter. I think the time line with which the lesions would progress to cancer is probably similar for conventional adenomas our post Pollock to me, surveillance recommendations are similar in terms of the, the intervals for follow up based on features under the microscope. But I think it's actually the case that we tend to miss these more often it's been shown in large observational studies like the Nici har- paper from the New England Journal in. Twenty fourteen that the majority of cancers that occur between colonoscopy, the so-called interval cancers, actually bear molecular features of the series had pathway, and so that makes the argument that they were missed about hyper plastic polyps. Do they carry any malignant potential? They really don't now hyperplasia polyps. We tend to think of as a rising in the, the rectum or signaled colon. And when you have a pathology report that tells you that you have a hyper plastic Pol up on the right side of the colon. Typically, you know, proximal to the splendid Fleischer that might wanna give you pause, especially if the daas copy report says it was large and the daas COPA spent considerable time wagging it out and have a photographic features that would otherwise support the diagnosis of sessile to polyp. So the, the two may be subject to some inter observer. Disagreement by pathologists and the, the.

"Diabetes and prostate breast and colon cancer. So, you know. No, again, people like to simplify things inflict like, it's all one thing. It's not one thing. It's all these diet, but it's all these other lifestyle factors as well. I wanna get into animal protein thing. But but before we do that just to kind of continue this threat on saturated fat, explain to me the study that led to this misconception. And and you know, there was a study that came out, correct? And everybody kind of latched onto this as a lot of studies that have come out and the problem is they often do what are called meta analyses where you combine together. Lots of different studies and science you're always trying to answer the question is this a real finding or is this a chance finding and by convention if there's less than a five percent chance of being due to chance it's considered a typically significant or a real finding the problem is when you must together a lot of different studies. There's a lot of noise. People don't always tell you the truth about what they eat on diet studies. I mean, they they tell you what they think you wanna hear. So there's an adherence problem. An adherence problem. But more more than that. There's a a lack of accurate information. Like like, people don't want to tell you oftentimes. I mean in our studies, we work with smaller groups of people, and we really hammer them about how important is tell us the truth. There's no shame. There's no guilt. Because if I tell patients if you tell us, you're eating healthy diet, and you really not then it looks like the is not working when religious not following. And so oftentimes people don't tell us the truth about don't tell other people the truth about what they're actually eating. So the more noise you have the hardest issues significant differences. So if you've got a lot of noise and people say, oh, well, saturated fat really isn't correlated with these things because it's not statistically significant more often than not really issue is because the the information they were getting was an accurate in the first place. Other data. Yes. Or it's skewed by other data right on the animal protein issue is that the is something inherent in animal protein itself. Or is it everything that comes with the animal protein? Like what is the difference between how the body metabolize animal protein versus plant protein. Or is it like the saturated fat and cholesterol that generally is conjoined with the intake of animal protein protein is harmful and plant based protein is not a late nut harmful. It's.

"Faster. Give your colon cancer. Maybe letting it out as a good thing, maybe being old style personality is good like an old world. Type two gets mad at everything over every second angry over something. There are people like that they live long. I mean, I don't know. I don't know that the emotions are related to health as much as we think I would think a little bit. Yes. But personally from my point of view, given the kind of I'm gonna try to describe our nature just for another second. I'm an expressive person. And I like to express myself and let it all out which is why I'm good on the radio because you more or less. What you hear is? What you hear? And what you hear is what I am. I'm not too guarded. And or just enough to survive. But the thing is I think keeping things in bottles you up, and I think the bottled up emotions. What caused the problems in the human body, whether they be tumors or other things, and whether that has been documented is another question. I remember back in eighty two. I wrote a book called maximum unity was a chapter on the autoimmune diseases and our member in researching that chapter the famous story of a female race driver who crashed a Ferrari erase soon thereafter? She developed rheumatoid arthritis, and the doctor who was writing about psychosomatic medicine said that it was related their sense of shame that she wreck the car nine that's not directly related, but it's related somewhat to emotions and health. Okay, or more specifically, emotions and disease causation, which is a topic. I've been kind of obsessed with are interested in my entire life.
