Briefly about Colorectal Cancer
Colorectal cancer, abbreviated as CRC and also known as bowel cancer, is the cancerous development that starts either in the colon or in the rectum which are both parts of the large intestine. Most of Colorectal cancers occur due to an old age and several lifestyle factors. CRC rarely develops due to underlying genetic disorders. There are several risk factors that increase a person’s risk for developing CRC. Colorectal cancer is one of the most fatal cancers with a poor prognosis if found out in its later stages. That is why early medical diagnostics of Colorectal cancer is very important.
Risk Factors for Colorectal Cancer
There are several risk factors for developing CRC. Gastroenterologists and oncologists state that these risk factors can lead to Colorectal cancer:
* Smoking
* Obesity
* Eating Processed Meat
* Lack of Physical Activity
* Inflammatory Bowel Disease
* Alcohol Abuse
* Crohn’s Disease
Besides these risk factors, there are also genetic disorders that pose a risk for a person to develop CRC. Those genetic disorders include:
* Familial Adenomatous Polyposis
* Hereditary Non-polyposis Colon Cancer
Signs and Symptoms of CRC
Like every malignant disease, Colorectal cancer has its signs and symptoms which include:
* Changes in Bowel Habits, such as Excessive Diarrhea or Constipation.
* Changes in Stool Consistency that last more than 4 Weeks
* Blood in Stool
* Rectal Bleeding
* Abdominal Discomfort that includes Cramps, Bloating and Gas
* Fatigue and Weakness
* Sudden and Unexplained Weight Loss
When two or more of the signs and symptoms of CRC are present, that is a red flag for medical doctors to perform medical diagnostics of Colorectal cancer for people who experience those symptoms. Medical diagnostics of CRC includes Fecal Occult Blood Test, Colonoscopy and Sigmoidoscopy.
