colon and rectal cancer symptoms in Fort Lauderdale, FL

What are the colon and rectal cancer symptoms?

These symptoms are caused by abnormal growths in the colon or rectum. These growths can start as small polyps that over time can turn cancerous. As the tumors grow, they can irritate the bowel lining, block the passage of stool, and cause bleeding.
Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is a type of cancer that begins in the colon or rectum. It is one of the most common types of cancer worldwide and can be life-threatening if not detected and treated early. The development of colon cancer usually starts with the growth of polyps, which are abnormal tissue growths in the lining of the colon or rectum. Over time, some of these polyps can turn into cancerous tumors.

The symptoms of colon and rectal cancer can vary depending on the size and location of the cancer. However, some common symptoms include:

  • Stool Bleeding
  • Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation or diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain or cramping
  • Narrow stools
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fatigue

What Causes colon and rectal cancer symptoms?

Colorectal Cancer Development: These factors can cause changes in the DNA of cells in the colon or rectum. These changes can turn healthy cells into polyps, which are abnormal growths. Most polyps are benign, but some polyps can turn cancerous over time. The exact process of how polyps become cancerous is not fully understood, but it likely involves the accumulation of additional mutations in the cells.

Colorectal Cancer Sign of Development: It’s essential to note that having a risk factor doesn’t mean you will definitely get colorectal cancer. Conversely, you can develop colorectal cancer without having any known risk factors. However, being aware of the risk factors and taking steps to reduce them can help lower your chances of developing the cancer. Consult a doctor at earliest.

Signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer.

  • Change in bowel habits: This includes constipation, diarrhea, or a feeling of incomplete bowel evacuation that lasts for more than a few days.
  • Rectal bleeding: This can be bright red blood on the stool or dark blood mixed in with the stool.
  • Bleeding Stool: Blood in the stool itself might not be visible, but a test might reveal it.
  • Narrow stools: Stools that are thinner than usual can indicate a blockage in the colon.

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s support to see a doctor to get a diagnosis. Early detection and treatment of colorectal cancer is essential for improving the chances of a cure.

Here are some additional symptoms to be aware of, although they might be caused by other conditions as well:

  • Abdominal pain or cramping
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Unable to perform Physical activity
  • Cancer has spread
  • Health Care problems
 

Regular colonoscopies play a vital role in detecting and preventing colon cancer. By allowing doctors to visually examine the colorectal, procedure can identify and remove polyps before they develop into cancerous tumors. Early detection greatly increases the chances of successful treatment and improves overall patient outcomes. If you are at an average risk for colon cancer, it is recommended to start regular at the age of 45. However, individuals with certain risk factors may need to start screenings earlier. Remember to consult with a qualified colorectal surgeon who can provide personalized recommendations based on your individual circumstances. Don’t wait until it’s too late – prioritize your health and schedule your screening today.
