-General population
-Single first-degree relative age >60 with colon cancer or adenomatous polyps
Start screening at age 50, options include:

2-gFOBT or FIT every year
3-FIT-DNA every 1-3 years
4-CT colonography every 5 years
5-Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years (or every 10 years combined with annual FIT)

NB(gFOBT = guaiac-based fecal occult blood test; FIT = fecal immunochemical test; FIT-DNA = multitarget stool DNA test.).
3-Colon screening for
1-First-degree relative age <60 with colon cancer or adenomatous polyps
2->2 first-degree relatives with colon cancer or adenomatous polyps at any age

11-what is the tretment of SLE1-Hydroxychloroquine is an anti-malarial agent which is particularly effective at improving arthralgias, serositis, and cutaneous symptoms. Hydroxychloroquine may also help to prevent future damage to the kidneys and central nervous system.

3-In patients with significant disease involving the kidneys or central nervous system, higher dose prednisone may be needed.

4-A combination of prednisone and cyclophosphamide are typically reserved for patients with more serious manifestations of SLE (e.g. lupus nephritis, central nervous system involvement, and vasculitis).

5-Methotrexate is generally indicated only for patients with significant organ involvement who have had incomplete response to prednisone alone.

2-if no improvement
-Increased dose of the antihistamine
-an additional first-generation H1 blocker (eg, hydroxyzine)

-H2 blocker (eg, ranitidine)
-or a brief course of oral steroid.

3-still no impromvement than hydroxychloroquine, tacrolimus, omalizumab
