This lecture will lead you through an understanding of colon cancer, the signs and symptoms of colon cancer, how colon cancer is diagnosed, treated and finally how it’s underwritten.
Risk factors play an important role in underwriting because some risk factors can worsen the prognosis of a disease. You will learn about pre-malignant conditions such as the various polyps and the familial colon cancer syndromes as well as the other risk factors for colon cancer.
The lecture will guide you through the staging of colon cancer and how to interpret that information for a mortality assessment. You will learn how to read a pathology report to capture the relevant information to assess the colon cancer risk.
Finally, you will learn how to capture all of this relevant information from the underwriting evidence and how to evaluate the information for mortality impact.
