Colonoscopy examination requires a longer time in patients with acromegaly than in other individuals.

In conclusion, although cecal intubation during colonoscopy was successful in all participants, it required a longer time in patients with acromegaly. Our results underscore the importance of and certain technical difficulties involved in colonoscopy procedures in patients with acromegaly, especially in older patients.

ConclusionThyroid micro-carcinomas are probably over-diagnosed among acromegalic patients. In regard to colon cancer, there is no sufficient data to suggest that colon cancer risk is higher in acromegaly compared to the general population.

Growth hormone (GH) excess in acromegaly is associated with increased precancerous colon polyps and soft tissue adenomas, whereas short-stature humans harboring an inactivating GH receptor mutation do not develop cancer. We show that locally expressed colon GH is abundant in conditions predisposing to colon cancer and in colon adenocarcinoma-associated stromal...
