The Causes And The Symptoms Of Bowel Cancer

The Causes And The Symptoms Of Bowel Cancer

A cancer is a triggered growth and spread of abnormal cells in a body. A cancer not only spreads nut it weakens the immune system of the host, leaving the host vulnerable to other diseases such as pneumonia. Unlike other cells in the body which happen to be normal, cancer cells aren’t. A cancer cell doesn’t contain the substances a normal cell needs to die and to be replaced. Hence this behavior can cause tumors, lumps on the interior and exterior of the host’s body while some cases like leukemia cannot be identified by visual signs. Bowel cancer surgery can form us in the rectum passage as well as the colon. If the condition is identified before any complications occur, bowel cancer can be treated using a combination of different medical procedures, which mainly includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy as well as robotic guided surgery and treatment.

Do I have IT?

The most common symptoms related to this type of cancers are blood in excrement, unusual changes in bowel habits as well as lower abdominal pains which can be severe at times. If a person feels like he/she has emulative results, they should immediately seek medical attention. Other bowel related abnormalities like atypical consistency of stools and hemorrhoids can also be secondary indicators. Commonly the colonoscopy procedure is performed to confirm the condition. This procedure is done under sedation and it’s done through inserting a tiny camera and other micro components into the host’s rectum. During the insertion the components through the aid of the camera will extract sample for biopsies as well as extract polyps. Furthermore the condition can also be identified through a flexible sigmoidoscopy test, CT scan or a CT colonography test.

How did I get IT?

The disease can be genetically transmitted if there a history of bowel cancer patients in the family. It can also occur due to due to damaged DNA. Obese people and people who prefer sedentary life styles are also directly prone to this type of cancer due to their inactiveness. A few studies have shown that low fiber high fat dieting habits can also elevate the possibility of being prone to colon cancer and high consumption of red meat contributes towards this factor as well. Chain smoking and alcoholism can also promote cancer cells inside the body and not just bowel cancer. Studies and statistics have shown that African-Americans are more prone to this disease compared with other races due to an error in the genetic configuration. Older age simply might be the issue since a vast majority of people are diagnosed with the disease when they are old.
