Patients： family members of a physician working at Dongguan Guanghua Hospital ;
Age: 57 and 23
The 57-year-old patient and his wife both have family history of colorectal cancer. The 57-year-old father did not feel like to have a colonoscopy, while his 23-year-old son had no clue of taking colorectal cancer screening. Considering the family history, the whole family and their relatives performed Colosafe® tests. On December 7, 2020, the Colosafe® test results showed positive for both father and son, and the colonoscopy and pathology reports confirmed that both had tubular adenomas. At the same time, a 27-year-old relative of the family was diagnosed with a tubular adenoma. This case suggests that people with a family history of colorectal cancer should take colorectal cancer screening regularly regardless of age.

Testing site: Dongguan Guanghua Hospital
Colonoscopy report: father: multiple polyps in colon; son: multiple polyps in sigmoid colon.
