Tokyo's Colorectal Cancer Screening Missed “No Abnormality” Tokyo, Adachi-ku, November 1, 19:30
Tokyo Adachi City's screening for colorectal cancer last year revealed that there were more than 100 residents who were informed that there was no abnormality even though there was a possibility of cancer, and the ward also investigated whether there was an opposite case I have decided.
This was clarified at a press conference by Adachi City on the 1st.
According to it, in the last year, the ward was inspected for colorectal cancer targeting 40 years old and over, but it was in charge of an inquiry even though it received a report from a testing company that there was a possibility of cancer and a positive that required a close examination There is a mistake that the doctor who fills in the medical examination form wrote negative with no abnormalities and notifies the residents who received the medical examination.
The ward contacted the inhabitant who required a close examination based on a report from the inspection company last month. .
At least 107 residents were notified that there was no abnormality even though there was a possibility of cancer, so Adachi was mistakenly notified that there was no abnormality even though there was no abnormality I'm also looking for a reverse case.
Mr. Nobuyuki Imai, General Manager of Adachi-ku, apologized, “I ’m sorry for the great inconvenience and concern”.
Adachi City instructs the medical institution in charge of the examination to strengthen the check system and apologizes to the target city residents.
