[Best Syndication] Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble prohormones. Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3 are the two major forms of these prohormones. Vitamin D3 is created when the sun is exposed to skin. Sunlight has ultraviolet B radiation rays that are key for your body to make vitamin D3.

Vitamin D is important to help maintain organ systems. Vitamin D is well known for its aid in forming bone and is necessary to develop strong bones. Vitamin D is also important in the process of regulating calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood and it also promotes calcium to be re-absorbed via the kidneys to be stored for a later use in the bones.

Foods can be fortified with a synthetic vitamin D supplement. Cereals and milk are often fortified with vitamin D. Depending on the country that you live in will determine the amounts and extent that foods have been fortified.

Failure to Diagnose Colon Cancer

Colorectal cancer is the third most common form of cancer. There are about 150,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Like most cancers, early detection and treatment is the key to survival. Colon cancer can usually be successfully treated when it is caught before it spreads beyond the wall of the intestine.

Five year survival rates for colon cancer are lower than 10% if the cancer is not discovered until it has spread to other organs or tissue elsewhere in the body, but are better than 90% when the cancer is discovered early, according to the National Cancer Institute.

Colon and rectal cancer detection

The fecal occult blood test is a simple, non-invasive test which is often performed to determine if further testing for colon cancer may be needed.

Flat Lesions More Cancerous Than Polyps – Colonoscopy Is Still Best Method For Detecting Colon Problems Before Cancer

Flat Lesions More Cancerous Than Polyps – Colonoscopy Is Still Best Method For Detecting Colon Problems Before Cancer

Colon Lesion

(Best Syndication) Researchers at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Healthcare System in California say that flat lesions are harder to detect during colonoscopy but are more likely to cause colon cancer. These non-polypoid colorectal neoplasms are more common than previously thought and are more likely to cause cancer than the polypoid neoplasms polyps.

The researchers say that colonoscopy is still the best procedure to examine the colon. It is also the best procedure to see the lesions and remove them from the colon before they turn cancerous. The edges of the lesions are still hard to identify according to Grace H. Elta, MD, FASGE, president of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE).

Rectal Polyps - Diseases

What is this condition?

Rectal polyps are masses of tissue that erupt through the mucous membrane of the colon and rectum and protrude into the digestive tract. Types of polyps include common polypoid adenomas, villous adenomas, hereditary polyposis, focal polypoid hyperplasia, and juvenile polyps (hamartomas). Most rectal polyps are benign. However, villous and hereditary polyps are likely to become malignant.

What causes it?

Formation of polyps results from unrestrained cell growth in the upper layer of the intestinal wall. Predisposing factors include heredity, age, infection, and diet. Men over age 55 are the most likely to develop villous adenomas. Women between ages 45 and 60 develop common polypoid adenomas. The incidence of rectal polyps rises in both sexes after age 70. Juvenile polyps occur most frequently among children under age 10.
