This check-up takes into account the last NCCN, ASCO, EMSO guidelines, but it also takes into account innovating aspect of molecular biology.
In November 2007 a capital publication of a report by international experts was published jointly by the Global Research Fund against Cancer (FMRC, or WCRF these abbreviations in English) and the American Institute for Cancer Research AICR). This report provides a current assessment of the relationship between nutrition, body composition, physical activity and different types of cancer. It may well include among the many known associations: the protective effect of exercise on colon cancer, the negative association of body fat and breast cancer in postmenopausal women or high salt intake and the risk of stomach cancer.
This check-up specially values the dialogue with the doctor specializing on oncology. The doctor will discuss the patient to determine his/her family medico-surgical history, personal medico-surgical history and to be aware of his/her socio-professional environment. The clinical exam, the evaluation of the results of biological check-up will allow the specialist to determine the risk factors and the specific domain to investigate.
A nutritional check-up will be achieved and will include a detailed evaluation of its socio-professional environment, lifestyle and dietary habits.
The corporal balance analysis DXA without injection of contrast product, non-invasive, and with very low radio exposition allows a very precise body regional and total measure of the bone, fat and lean mass. This technology is widely used in the elite sportive realm to specify the impact of nutrition and training on the sportsman/woman. It also allows to follow precisely its evolution in time.
The low dose PET/CT exam without injection of contrast product is offered in some clinics as a complementary technique for cancer screening. Thus we can find it in suggestions from John Hopkins or the Mayo Clinic, but PET exams is mostly widely used for screening in the Asian world. Such a check-up is only appropriate if there is final consultation with the specialist to review the results of all performed exams. The oncologist will give hygiene of life advises and will discuss with the patient about the targeted regular check-ups to perform.
After the first consultation with the oncologist, some additional exams can be added.
