SATURDAY, June 2, 2018 -- Black men with advanced prostate cancer who get chemotherapy may live longer than white men, a new study suggests.

The models show that starting a colonoscopy earlier, at the age of 45, increased life-years by 6.2 percent compared to beginning at 50, as we do now. From the age of 55 years onwards, members of the health insurance funds can choose between faecal occult blood testing every two years or two colonoscopies at least ten years apart.
