73-year-old Uncle Qu, suffering from hemorrhoids for half a year, had difficulty defecating recently and came to Shanghai Pudong Hospital for treatment.Wang Tingfeng, deputy chief physician of gastrointestinal Surgery department, conducted anal finger examination for him, and found a mass of about 1*1cm in size within 1cm from the anus, which was suspected to be a malignant tumor.And, exsanguinate assay result shows index of prostate cancer tumor on the high side!Before long, the pathological results of Uncle Qu came out, which also showed that the rectal mass biopsy and prostate puncture tissue were adenocarcinoma.Although the patient was older, other conditions were good and the tumor did not have distant metastasis. After preoperative preparation, gastrointestinal surgery and urology surgery combined to perform laparoscopic radical resection of rectal cancer and laparoscopic radical resection of prostate cancer for Uncle Qu.On the day of the operation, the gastrointestinal surgery team first performed laparoscopic radical resection of rectal cancer, which took 2 hours and 15 minutes.The urological team then performed a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, which took two hours and 25 minutes.Colorectal cancer ranks third in the world and second in Shanghai.Most of the patients were found to be in the middle and late stage, posing a serious threat to residents’ health.However, colorectal cancer is internationally recognized as one of the cancers that can be detected through early screening. Residents participating in colorectal cancer screening can not only help to detect early colorectal cancer, but also identify precancerous lesions early, block the development process of colorectal cancer, and effectively reduce the morbidity and mortality of colorectal cancer patients.How can you screen a large intestine cancer as early as possible?Since 2013, Shanghai has provided free fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) for Shanghai citizens over 50 years old.At the beginning of the New Year, residents aged 68 and 69 in Pudong New Area received a “letter home” from the Pudong Disease Control and Prevention Center, reminding the community to offer free colorectal cancer screening to people over 50. They can choose the nearest screening site and call the hotline to consult related matters.Schedule: Colorectal cancer screening time and service Hotline of community Health Service centers in Pudong New AreaText: Zhang Qi Editor: Zhu Yikai * Reprinted please indicate from Pudong released official wechat
