Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, December 4, 1974 LETHBRIDQE HERALD 'Cancer nobody talks about9 New York Times Service NEW YORK, Nov. 30 Cancer of the colon and rec- tum is often called "the cancer nobody talks about." It might also be called the cancer that little is done about Yet it is the most com- mon life threatening cancer in the United States today, and a means of preventing most fatal cases has been available for nearly 60 years. This method, examination by proctosigmoidoscope (procto for enables a doctor to see into the last 12 inches of the bowel, where two third of colon-rectal cancers arise. Dr. V.ctor A. GHbertsen. who heads the Cancer Detec- tion Centre at the University of Minnesota, found in a study of procto examinations that if polyps are discovered and removed surgically, four out of five patients who would otherwise have developed bowel cancer never get it. This week, a New York physician described another advance against this disease examination by means of a flexible instrument through which a doctor can see the full six feet of the large intestine, and through which most polyps can be removed safely and painlessly without an anesthetic. Using the device, called a colonoscope, Dr. William 1.0. Wolff said he and his colleagues had examined more than patients and removed more than polyps and in dnly one case did a serious complication develop He said his work clearly demonstrated that practically all cancers of the colon and rectum begin as polyps, which are considered benign tumors. This is not to say that all polyps will eventually become cancerous, but that a person with polyps has a greater than average risk of develop- ing bowel cancer. About 10 per cent of polyps have malig- nant potential, Wolff has found. Wolff told the National Conference on Cancer Management, held here this week that the flexible colonoscope contains a fiberoptic light source that literally enables one to see around corners. A knife-like tool at the far end can be manipulated from the outside. Trapped LONDON (Reuter) Police and firemen answered a frantic phone call today from a man who said he was trapped inside a telephone booth at Faringdon, Ox- fordshire. They released him by ex- plaining that the door opened inwards not outwards. LOST TIME RECORD OTTAWA (CP) The amount of time lost due to strikes and lockouts in the first nine months of million already exceeded the previous record of 7.8 million man-days during one year set in 1972, New type of city envisaged MONTREAL (CP) William Teron, chairman of Central Mortgage and Hous- ing Corp. envisages a large city comprised of small self-contained but inter-connecting communities as a vast improvement to existing metropolitan areas. In an address yesterday to the Canadian Club of Montreal, Mr. Teron suggested the kinds of cities Canadians now live in alienate them because inhabitants have no feeling of community. Yet, most people felt it was necessary to live in large urban environments because of opportunities unavailable in a village setting Mr. Teron feels a combination of the village and city can be reached and CMHC is engaged in research to find such a work- ing model that can be applied to Canada. "The city is a he said, because it beckons people promising a better life but only leaves them feeling alienated. "A community must be small enough so that it offers security but it must be large enough to offer job, cultural and recrea- tional he said. "A community must provide a wide enough range of human activities to provide its inhabitants with fulfillment." A city has much to offer, he said, but such benefits are useless unless they are accessible to all. At CMHC, we are exploring the fron- tiers of this it is our responsibility to do this."
