國語防癌專題講座 Colorectal Cancer Forum

加拿大防癌協會在三月舉辦的「結腸直腸癌預防與篩檢」講座完滿結束,由癌症研究中心主任 Dr. Carolyn Gotay 和卑詩癌症中心代表 Javis Lui作為主講嘉賓,並設有國語翻譯。

此活動在宣傳期間和活動當日都受到大溫地區華人社區的熱烈關注。當天有超過120人出席,並早在報名期間就已超出預計的人數。參加者除了從講員的演講中得到重要信息,還利用問答環節和休息時間踴躍地向講員們提出了很多關於大腸癌的問題。觀眾們異口同聲表示此活動讓他們獲益良多,並希望本會日後能舉辦更多有關除癌的活動。最後,此次活動之所以能得此成功,眾義工的努力也不能不提。

現僅將講座內容摘錄於下,以便未能出席的讀者。
在BC省,結腸直腸癌(亦稱大腸癌)是卑詩省第二號癌症殺手, 而大部份的患者都是年過50歲。雖然大腸癌的發病率高,但預防的方法也極為容易。如果能在早期及時發現和治療,成功痊癒率可高達90%。Dr. Gotay 強調了以改變生活方式的方法預防癌症,因為47% 的大腸癌病例可以通過堅持每天運動,保持健康的體重和飲食來預防。在預防的同時,篩檢可以在息肉變成惡性腫瘤之前找到及除去,從而預防大腸癌。盡早發現癌症意味著可有更多治療選擇及更佳的治療成果。我們建議所有50-74歲的女士和男士都應定期接受大腸癌篩檢。



On Saturday, March 29th, 2014, the Canadian Cancer Society hosted a Chinese Cancer Prevention Forum. Dr. Carolyn Gotay and a representative from the BC Cancer Agency delivered presentations on colorectal cancer prevention and the BC Colon Screening Program.

The event has drawn a lot of attention from the Chinese community and was very well received. Over 120 people attended. The participants were very engaged and did not hesitate to ask questions or voice their concerns about colorectal cancer. Feedback from the participants was positive. Many committing to change their lifestyle and incorporate regular screening into their lives. A big THANK to all our volunteers who put together this successful event!

Summary of the presentations:
Colorectal cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in BC. Most of the patients are above 50 years old. Although colorectal cancer has high incidence rates, it is also very easily prevented. Dr. Gotay’s presentation emphasized on lifestyle changes - it is known that 47% of cases of colorectal cancer can be prevented through eating and drinking healthily, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight. Furthermore, screening can prevent colon cancer by finding and removing polyps before they turn into cancer. If can also detect cancer at an early stage, which means more treatment options and better outcomes. Screening is recommended for men and women aged 50-74.
