Colorectal cancer is a kind of cancer that develops in the colon or rectum. This guide will discuss how digestive disorder is linked with colorectal cancer.
Firstly, Digestive problems are some of the most common symptoms of colorectal cancer. Also, This can include changes in bowel habits like constipation or diarrhoea and bloody stool, and abdominal pain.
Feeling tired or worn out is another symptom of colorectal cancer. Especially, without changing activity level or sleep schedule.
Unexpected weight loss
Unexpected weight loss is another symptom of colorectal cancer. While sometimes unexpected weight loss is caused by something other than colorectal cancer, your physician should investigate it.
Abnormally colored stool
Initially, many people think all bowel movements must be brown. However, this is not true; a normal bowel movement can range from yellow to green to brown and may have a slight odour. If your stool is bright red or black, this could signify colorectal cancer.
A colonoscopy is one of the most commonly used diagnostic tools for this type of cancer. A thin, flexible tube containing a small camera on its end (Colonoscope) is inserted into the rectum and moved through the colon to detect abnormalities or growth.
CT scan if cancer is found
A CT scan is an imaging test that produces detailed pictures of different body parts. A CT scan can check if cancer has spread beyond your colon or rectum to other body parts.
Finally, It is among the most serious disease that leads to death. There are some common signs and warnings you should be aware of to avoid potentially life-threatening consequences of this disease. Contact Prolife Cancer Centre and Research Institute, Pune for further detail.
