Abstract

Objective: This study investigated the screening practices of colorectal cancer and prostate cancer among men who aged 50 years and above in Taiwan. Methods: Using a random telephone dialing system, we interviewed adults aged 20 years and above to collect information about their socio-demographic characteristics, cancer screening experiences and lifestyles. Results: Among 521 men aged 50 and above, 122 (23.4%) had undergone colorectal cancer screening, and 68 (13.0%) had experienced prostate cancer screening. Ethnicity (p=0.034) and occupation (p=0.001) were factors significantly associated with the colorectal cancer screening. Men of 60 years old and above were more likely to have had the prostate cancer screening than were men of 50-59 years old (p=0.013). Smokers were also less likely to have had prostate cancer screening practice than nonsmokers (p=0.05). The rate of colon cancer screening was lowered for betel nut users (p=0.05) or for men did not exercise (p=0.05). Prostate cancer screening was significantly associated with cancer knowledge level. Conclusion: This study showed that only a small portion of men have experienced screening test for the colorectal cancer and prostate cancer in Taiwan. Intensified promotion of these screening practices is needed, especially for those with an unhealthy lifestyle and lack of the cancer knowledge.
