PEREYRA, Lisandro et al. Colorectal cancer screening with colonoscopy. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2013, vol.73, n.6, pp.567-572. ISSN 0025-7680.

Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death worldwide and also in Argentina. In the past few years colorectal cancer screening has become more popular and colonoscopy has been postulated as the gold standard. In this review we analyzed the evidence supporting this method in contrast with its complications and disadvantages.

Keywords : Colorectal cancer screening; Colonoscopy; Colonic polyps.
