Colon Cancer Screening in First-Degree Relatives of Hispanic Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Patients
Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Screening in First-Degree Relatives (FDRs) of Hispanic CRC Patients

Primary Objectives:

  1. To evaluate knowledge, beliefs, attitudes and values that influence perceptions and utilization of colorectal cancer screening (CRCS) among first-degree relatives of Hispanic CRC patients.
  2. To assess factors influencing Hispanic CRC patients' communication of CRC risk and screening information to their FDRs.

Secondary Objective:

1) To establish the feasibility of recruiting Hispanic CRC patients and their FDRs from the institutional patient database and/or MDACC clinics.

CRC PATIENTS AND THEIR FDRS:

You will be asked to complete a questionnaire by telephone interview. The study researcher who calls you will ask for your permission to audiotape the interview. The questionnaire asks about your awareness of screening tests for colorectal cancer, your family's past use of these screening tests, your attitudes toward colorectal cancer screening, and how you discuss colorectal cancer risk and screening with your family and health care providers. Some demographic information also will be collected (such as your age or marital status). The questionnaire will take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete.

Your answers to the questions and your personal information will be kept strictly confidential. Your questionnaire answers will be identified with a code number, rather than a name, so that you cannot be identified. Audiotaped recordings will be destroyed after all the data have been collected and studied (no longer than 5 years).

This is an investigational study. Up to 60 colorectal cancer patients and their close relatives may be enrolled in the study. All will be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.

KEY INFORMANT:

You will be asked to complete a psychosocial interview either in person or by telephone. The study staff member interviewing you will ask you for permission to audiotape the interview. You will be asked to review the interview guides for colorectal cancer patients and their first degree relatives (FDRs), and provide feedback about them. The interviewer will ask for your opinions about Hispanics' awareness and understanding of colorectal cancer screening. You will also be asked for your opinion about cultural beliefs and practices that may influence participation in colorectal cancer screening. The interview will take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete.

Your answers to the questions and your personal information will be kept strictly confidential. Your questionnaire answers will be identified with a code number, rather than a name, so that you cannot be identified. Audiotaped recordings will be destroyed after all the data have been collected and studied (no longer than 5 years).

This is an investigational study. Up to 15 key informants may be enrolled in this study. All will be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. CRC Patients: CRC patients will be excluded if they have a history of a known hereditary CRC syndrome (e.g., HNPCC, familial polyposis) or inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease), or were diagnosed with distant metastases.
  2. First degree relatives: FDRs of eligible CRC patients will be excluded if they have a history of a known hereditary CRC syndrome (e.g., HNPCC, familial polyposis) or inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease), or have a personal history of cancer (except non-melanoma skin cancer) or polyps.
