Incidence and Characteristics of Ileo-colonic Neuroendocrine Tumours Identified in the UK Bowel Cancer Screening Programme
Introduction: Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the UK this had led to development of the bowel cancer screening programmes (BCSPs).There are few epidemiological data on rectal or ileal NETs diagnosed in BCSPs.
Aim(s): This study aims to identify the number of NETs diagnosed through the UK BCSP.
Materials and methods: UK bowel cancer colonoscopy data is stored on the Exeter database managed by Public Health England (PHE). Queries were developed by PHE to capture potential NET related search terms across relevant data tables in the Exeter database. Queries were run to identify BCSP participants attending for colonoscopy from 2006 to December 2014. A written proforma was sent to the responsible BCSP clinician for all participants identified with NET related search terms.
