Researchers in Hong Kong analyzed data from a bowel cancer screening programme for asymptomatic local Chinese. They could choose between fecal immunochemical test (FIT) and colonoscopy. Among 3430 participants, 48.7% chose FIT and 51.3% chose colonoscopy. Those with younger age, family history of bowel cancer and self-perceived poor health status preferred to choose colonoscopy.
